Lisa Rodriguez

Lisa Rodriguez is an Community Engagement intern.

Lisa graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas in 2010 with a degree in Convergent Journalism, with emphasis in television broadcast, and a minor in Spanish.

Lisa's favorite thing to do in Kansas City is see live entertainment, be it a sporting event, dance performance, play, or concert. She also enjoys reading, experimenting in the kitchen, and going out to eat.

Lisa currently works as a server, bartender and singer at Le Fou Frog, a French bistro near the River Market.

She was born in Santiago, Chile, and mostly grew up in Kansas City.

For the first time ever, Kansas City will have a regularly scheduled flight across the Atlantic Ocean. 

Starting May 26, Kansas City International airport will offer direct flights to Reykjavik, Iceland on Icelandair.

Deputy aviation director Justin Meyer says the new flight will bring down European fares, and allow for easy connections to other parts of Europe. 

The flight will be offered seasonally, from May to September three days a week. 

The family of Caleb Schwab has made arrangements for his memorial service.

Ten-year-old Schwab died Sunday riding the Verrückt waterslide at Schlitterbahn in Kansas City, Kansas.  He was the son of Kansas state representative Scott Schwab.
