Major Jeff Longwell
Honorary Chair of Wichita Area Sister Cities
Since 1973, we have worked diligently to strengthen our relationships with each of the four cities – Cancun, Mexico; Orleans, France, Kaifeng, China; and Tlalnepantla, Mexico. WASC continues to serve as a catalyst for educational and city-to-city exchanges that have enriched our ties abroad and I thank you for your diligence.
