Abilene, Kan. - The 2022 virtual programming from the Eisenhower Presidential Library kicks off the first monthly Lunch & Learn on Thursday, January 27 at noon central time. This year's theme is titled "Dwight D. Eisenhower: The Making of a Leader." Mary Jean Eisenhower will help us get to know her great-grandmother Ida.

Ida Eisenhower was a magnificent woman known for her strength and resilience. These character traits were passed down to each of her boys. She was a woman of strong moral fortitude with a gentle hand in teaching her children life-long lessons of character. Mary Jean will share family stories and experiences she uncovered while researching her great-grandmother's life.


Register in advance and join us via Zoom.

The 2022 Lunch & Learn series is made possible courtesy of the Eisenhower Foundation with generous support from the Jeffcoat Foundation.
