Having been involved in the struggle against authoritarian rule in Kenya throughout his academic career, Senator Nyong’o was among the leaders who made a break through into multiple party politics in 1992. He was then elected to Parliament in that year and has served in various capacities since then. He was Minister for Planning and National Development (2003-2005) and Minister for Medical Services (2008-2013). He is currently the Senator for Kisumu County in the Senate, member of the Senate Committee of Finance, Budget and Commerce and Chairman of Senate Committee on Public Accounts and Investments.

Values Day is an annual tradition established by Stetson University’s eighth president, H. Douglas Lee. Every year Stetson University celebrates Values Day in the month of September. Values Day is a day dedicated to the university’s commitment to its core values–personal growth, intellectual development and global citizenship.

Values Day is designed to continue dialogue between students, faculty and staff, so that the Stetson University community shares, learns and appreciates our shared core values.
