Meet Honorary Hosts –
Senia and Will Shields!

Senia and Will are an amazing couple that has made a lasting philanthropic impact in Kansas City. They first came to KC in 1993 for Will to take a job with the KC Chiefs that landed him in the NFL Hall of Fame. During the same year, they established the Will to Succeed Foundation.

We are thrilled with their enthusiastic support – and after two years of celebrating virtually, we can’t wait to see you at the Library in person. Early bird tickets are now available!
