The Manhattan community and the Kansas State University campus have a strong tradition of volunteerism and each year many selfless individuals and organizations give of their time and talents to address critical needs in Manhattan. Their efforts make a significant and lasting impact in the life of the campus and community, and we believe that they deserve recognition for their inspirational leadership, said Richard Weerts, student program coordinator at the K-State Volunteer Center of Manhattan.
