A letter from Coach Bill Snyder: A note of thanks

By Bill Snyder

Dear "Family," or Faculty and Staff,

Just a brief note of gratitude once again for all you have meant to Kansas State University and your football program.

I say "yours" and that is the purpose of this note. You truly do represent the values of family as it relates to the university, its faculty and the football program. Our staff and players recognize and greatly appreciate it just as I do. You have probably heard me say numerous times that the "family" on our stadium includes you as well as my personal family and all the people past and present who have been a part of this program — this truly includes our faculty and university staff members. I have also said so many times that Kansas State is truly about people caring about people in a very special way. That is truly why we came to Kansas State, why we stayed and why, after a three-year semiretirement, we came back — because of you "the family."

Thank you so very much for being such great Wildcats; and for contributing so strongly and passionately to the lives of your students.

Warmest regards,

Bill Snyder, Staff and Football Student-Athletes

P.S. We truly support the concept that our institution is and should be about educating young men and women and providing them with the foundation for becoming successful in all facets of their lives.
