Kosovo president in Des Moines for event

Kosovo President Hashim Thaҫi and others from the Balkan country will be on the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) Ankeny Campus Thursday.

President Thaҫi will also be joined by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and school President Rob Denson to honor 28 Kosovo Women in Energy students enrolled for the fall semester.

The gathering will take place at 6 p.m. just before an Iowa Culinary Institute Gourmet Dinner.

The Women in Energy program is funded by a grant from the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

It provides grants for DMACC to train women leaders in Kosovo’s energy industry.
