Growing up in a small western Kansas town, Kyle Calvin knows first-hand the value of hard work and discipline. These values guided him his first year at Washburn University School of Law where he had a prime academic start and received an invitation to join law journal.
Kyle had success early-on in life winning multiple team and individual state championships in both high school track and cross country. This success led him to Fort Hays State University where he accepted a scholarship to run track and cross country for the Tigers. During his running career at FHSU he earned varsity letter and made the MIAA conference honor roll numerous times.
Along with athletics, Kyle served as a student leader on FHSU’s campus. He was elected student body president where he had the opportunity to represent students on important University decisions. Moreover, in his role as president, he acted as a student advocate highlighting issues to the Governor of Kansas, Board of Regents, and Legislators alike. Additionally, Kyle was a member of a myriad of organizations and served on dozens of committees that encouraged student growth while simultaneously supporting his own growth. This growth wasn’t limited to campus involvement, but extended academically as well where he scored in the 97th percentile on the Educational Testing Service exam, a nationwide comparative test for business majors. While at FHSU, Kyle studied abroad in both China and Germany, as well as a three-week trip in Western Europe. During his final year at FHSU, he helped found the Sebelius Lecture Series that has attracted to campus famous political figures like Karl Rove, Jay Carney, Howard Dean, and Newt Gingrich.
After graduating from FHSU in December of 2013 with a degree in business administration, Kyle traveled to Washington D.C. to work for U.S. Senator Jerry Moran. Eager to be back in Kansas, he returned last summer, purchased a home, and began law school at Washburn University.
Following his completion of law school, Kyle hopes to utilize his degree in finance by practicing business law in Kansas. Kyle worked as a 2015 and 2016 summer associate at Foulston Siefkin in Wichita, and joined the firm post graduation.
