Greater Kansas City Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast – Feb. 26, 2022

The 61st annual Greater Kansas City Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast will be at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23, at the Kansas City Convention Center Grand Ballroom, Kansas City, Missouri. The guest speaker will be Tammie Jo Shults, who was in the national spotlight on April 17, 2018, when she landed a Southwest Boeing 737 after an engine exploded at high altitude, damaging the aircraft and causing depressurization and multiple system failures. One hundred forty-eight lives were saved. Shults’ book about her experience is “Nerves of Steel: How I Followed My Dreams, Earned My Wings and Faced My Greatest Challenge.” Shults, a former Navy pilot and instructor who was one of the first women naval aviators to qualify in the F/A-18 Hornet, is a graduate of Mid-America Nazarene University, Olathe, Kansas. She reached the rank of lieutenant commander in the Navy. Those who attend this breakfast are asked to bring socks to donate to organizations that serve the homeless.
