Finding Oneself Along the Road of Yes and Even NO!!
Dr. Kathy Kaiser’s response to a contract which suddenly and unexpectedly arrived in the mail was—where is Chico? She had forgotten that she had applied! But she accepted, sight unseen, beginning a long career as a member of the CSU, Chico Sociology Department faculty. It hasn’t been only teaching that has kept Dr. Kaiser busy since her arrival in Chico. She became a distance runner and helped coach the CSU, Chico track team. She has been active with the campus Academic Senate, which resulted in her becoming the first female Faculty Trustee on the CSUsystem Board of Trustees. Later, she was elected to the Board of the Chico Unified School District. Her life has continued to evolve, including going to sea aboard an aircraft carrier and extensive travel abroad as an educational ambassador. Through her talk she encourages others to “explore together the adventure of finding oneself—at any age!”
