Landgren Welcomes Challenge In New Position

After 22 years with Emporia State University, Lyndel Landgren took over the role of Community Relations Director for Emporia Public Schools Monday.

Landgren, a Council Grove native, attended ESU and earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from the university. He left his job as ESU’s Associate Director of Admissions last week.

Landgren said ESU has played a huge role in his life for more than 20 years, but he found that he was ready to take on a new challenge.

“I met my wife at Emporia State and we both went to college there,” he said. “I was working on my Master’s degree and I had the opportunity to work on campus in the admissions offi ce. I really fell in the love with the opportunity to recruit students and communicate and build relationships with campus folks within the community. Just over the course of that time, I was able to make progressions through the admissions offi ce over the past 22 years, but I decided it was time to look at something new.”
