MANHATTAN -- Allan J. Saylor, bachelor's graduate in human resource management, Hutchinson, is the fall 2010 recipient of the Outstanding Senior in Business Award from Kansas State University's College of Business Administration.

The award was presented at the college's commencement ceremony Dec. 11.

"Allan has been an inspiration to his peers during her time at K-State," said Yar Ebadi, dean of the College of Business Administration. "He's done a wonderful job serving the college in a number of leadership roles. I'm pleased to see his outstanding contributions recognized through this prestigious award. I also am confident Allan will be a very successful K-State alumnus, and I look forward to hearing about his future accomplishments."

In addition to his degree, Saylor earned a certificate in international business. He served as a College of Business Administration Ambassador and in the Society for Human Resource Management, where he was K-State chapter president and vice president. He also is a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Beta Gamma Sigma honor societies.

Saylor is the son of Randel and Joan Saylor, Fort Smith, Ark., and a graduate of Trinity Catholic High School in Hutchinson. His future plans include completing a master of business administration and pursuing a career in corporate training and employee development.

The outstanding graduating senior in business is selected by a committee of the dean's Student Advisory Council, which includes the presidents of the college's various student organizations.
