WSU journalism professor will be missed.

Les Anderson died this week and we will miss him. He was a teacher, mentor, journalist, author and all around nice guy. I met Les when I joined Wichita Professional Communicators several years ago. When he compiled his Ark Valley News humor columns into a book “Never Take a Snake for a Ride,” A lot of folks filled Watermark Books to hear him speak and have him sign copies. And I believe some or all of the proceeds went to the Valley Center Library building fund. He was a great guy and I’m glad to see a lot of people have taken the time to talk about his life.

You can read some of them here: WSU, Wichita Eagle, Wichita Business Journal, Tulsa World, Dodge Globe, KAKE TV, KWCH TV, KSNW TV

Farewell, Les. Blessings to you, your family and your friends.
