The second pillar of Mortar Board is Leadership. As a Mortar Board chapter, we strive to practice leadership within the organization, K-State, and Manhattan. Our leadership involvement is a combination of traditional projects, and unique engagement opportunities.


Mortar Board members are currently working on their national project, First Book. First Book helps provide age-appropriate reading material for area children. In the past, Mortar Board Chapters have hosted events at the School of Leadership Studies Building with themed classrooms and guest book readers including past K-State Men's Basketball coach Frank Martin.



Mortar Board Week

During National Mortar Board Week usually the second week of February, our chapter raises awareness of Mortar Board and celebrates our pillars of scholarship, leadership and service. The Leadership Team will coordinate events throughout the week such as an informational booth in the union and a panel discussion featuring some of K-State's most influential leaders.
