“People and events previously unknown serve to challenge our understanding and add context to our decisions to create a more secure future for us and our children,” said Milken, a businessman, philanthropist, education advocate and the namesake of Fort Scott’s gleaming new Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes.
