NBA star-turned-philanthropist Kevin Johnson will be the first speaker in this year’s Breakfast Club Speakers Series, hosted by the California State University, Sacramento Alumni Association.

The free events, which include breakfast, feature a range of guests speaking on hot topics in the Sacramento region in a low-key, off-the-record format that allows audience interaction.

Johnson retired from the NBA in 2000 after 12 seasons with the Phoenix Suns. He is currently the president of St. Hope Corporation, a non-profit community development corporation working to revitalize Sacramento’s Oak Park neighborhood. The education arm of the operation opened two charter schools this summer – the new Sacramento High School and Public School 7 elementary school. Its economic development efforts include the renovation of the 40 Acres Art Gallery and Cultural Center.

Other topics and speakers in this year’s Breakfast Club series include CSUS President Alexander Gonzalez on Tuesday, Dec. 16; Sacramento County Sheriff Lou Blanas on Tuesday, March 9; and News 10 anchor Cristina Mendonsa on Tuesday, May 11.

Seating is limited. For reservations or additional information, contact the Alumni Association at (916) 278-6295.
