Distinguished Alumnus Visits KU and the Department -I

Saturday, October 1, 2011

We are fond of claiming that our graduates can go out and do just about anything. A distinguished visitor to campus in September bears out that claim to an unprecedented degree. General Pahol Sanganetra (PhD Physics 1983) serves as the deputy permanent Secretary for Defense for Thailand. As part of a tour of the military facilities at Leavenworth, he and his wife (pictured) returned to KU to participate in a moderated discussion sponsored by KU's East Asian Studies & Global & International Studies Programs as well as KU's Office of Professional Military Graduate Education, with a stopover in the Department to reminisce with the faculty, students, and his thesis advisor, Doug McKay.
