Eileen Kludt
"The Hillcrest"

It is this desire in each of us to research, educate, and just learn how things operate or were made. This has been the way I approach learning.

My name is Eileen Kludt and I moved to Wichita in the summer of 2011 after the passing of my husband, Francis, in 2005.

I grew up in Roanoke, Virginia, graduated high school and entered Nursing school.

Nursing was a profession I enjoyed but always felt someday I would go back to school.  I was accepted to Texas A&M University after my younger daughter graduated from A&M and graduated in 2005 with a Business Degree and a minor in Horticulture.

I am the proud mother of three beautiful children, all of whom are Aggies and six grandchildren. My oldest granddaughter is a junior at Kansas State and a proud member of the KState Wildcat Band.

4-H was a big part of our family and as a result I was appointed to the State 4-H Clothing Board and received the Award for Gray County 4-H Volunteer of the Year.

Eileen is a member of East Wichita Rotary, two-time Paul Harris Fellow and received Rotarian of the Year in 2013-2014.

Eileen has spent the last two years learning everything there is to know about The Hillcrest.
