The 21st annual Rock Chalk Ball was held on Saturday, April 23, at the Overland Park Convention Center. The theme for this year’s event was “There’s No Place Like Home,” complete with a handcrafted tornado in the ballroom, and Topher Enneking served as the emcee.

A special thank you to our event chairs, John, j’81, l’84, and Suzy Holt, l’84, and Joseph, c’01, and Shanna Grant, b’01, as well as the Rock Chalk Ball committee chairs, Mark A. Frutiger, b’01, and Jake Ballard, b’01.
