Rep. Cleaver with Chancellor Beatty

Metropolitan Community College Chancellor Kimberly Beatty has been honored by U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II for her leadership and service to the community.

Each year Cleaver and fellow U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr. induct a prominent individual from the state into their Missouri Walk of Fame. The awards are always presented during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference.

Cleaver presented his award to Dr. Beatty at the event Sept. 13 in Washington. The Fifth District congressman, a Kansas City Democrat, honored the chancellor for “outstanding leadership at Metropolitan Community College and commitment to student success and diversity.”

“This is an individual who has dedicated her life to inspiring and empowering the next generation of Americans, making a profoundly positive impact on countless lives,” Cleaver said. “I’m thankful for the chancellor’s contributions to the Kansas City community and look forward to the work still to come.”

Dr. Beatty became Metropolitan Community College’s eighth chancellor on July 1, 2017.

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy, research and education institute for African-Americans.
