Interview with Lance Krannawitter
His move to the Hays school district gets Krannawitter closer to his parents in Russell and allows the opportunity to further an education career that has spent time in three different countries. As a United States Peace Corps volunteer, he spent two years in Tanzania, East Africa teaching English and agriculture to high school students. Krannawitter also spent a year in South Korea teaching English as a Second Language.
Krannawitter is a Hoxie high school graduate and earned two degrees from Fort Hays State University. He also completed two leadership programs at FHSU.
