The CGSC Foundation has selected Foundation Trustee Patrick C. Warren as a Foundation Person of Note to honor his service to the U.S. Army and the CGSC Foundation.
Warren has been the Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army (CASA) for Kansas City since 2019, a duty in which he assists the Army in its recruiting efforts and other advisory CASA duties. As president of Kansas Speedway since 2010, he has supported Foundation programs such as the two-year old CGSC Foundation Kansas Speedway event. He also provides members of all branches of the military and their families tickets to attend NASCAR races and participate in VIP events at the Kansas Speedway.
“Pat has masterfully combined his positions as a CASA and the Kansas Speedway president with his duties as a Foundation trustee,” said Foundation President/CEO Rod Cox. “Having his support has made a tremendous difference in our efforts to provide family-friendly, bucket-list sorts of events for our military families. We simply could not conduct those events without his support.”
Warren is a graduate of the University of Kansas with an undergraduate degree in Political Science followed by a Juris Doctorate. After law school he worked in the KU Athletics Program for eight years and then left KU to attend the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, where he received his MBA with concentrations in Finance and Marketing in 2004. He joined Kansas Speedway in 2006 and was promoted to president in 2010. He has received Fort Riley’s highest honor for private citizens, the Distinguished Trooper Award, in 2015 in recognition of his work with Soldiers there. Warren has also served in leadership roles in a variety of civic organizations including the board of directors for the Kansas City, Kansas Chamber of Commerce, Wyandotte County Economic Development Council, Sunflower House, and the Whiteman Air Force Base Community Council.
The CGSC Foundation is proud to honor Patrick C. Warren. His dedication and support to the CGSC Foundation is more than worthy of our “Person of the Note” recognition.
