WALL STREET JOURNAL RECOGNIZES RECENT K-STATE GRAD

MANHATTAN -- Kelli McMurphy Lambrecht, a May 2010 Kansas State University bachelor's graduate in finance, has received a 2010 Wall Street Journal Student Achievement Award.

Lambrecht, Topeka, was nominated for the honor by Scott Hendrix, instructor of finance in K-State's College of Business Administration. Hendrix said Lambrecht was an exceptional student and leader.

"Kelli achieved in the classroom and was excellent as one of the leaders of the Student Finance Association," he said. "She initiated a lot of new student activities, always encouraged her fellow members to take part, and helped prepare students for visits with professionals in the field and alums."

Hendrix said Lambrecht was instrumental with the Student Finance Association's 2009 visit with investor, industrialist and philanthropist Warren Buffett in Omaha.

"Kelli helped coordinate the trip with Buffett's office. She even helped coordinate the questions students planned to ask him," Hendrix said.

Lambrecht, who graduated from Seaman High School in 2006, now works as a surveillance analyst for KeyBank in Kansas City, Mo.

The award includes a year's subscription to both the print and online editions of the Wall Street Journal. Lambrecht's name also has been added to the plaque in Calvin Hall that lists the college's other recipients of the honor.
