K-State Proud: Campaign Week is here

By Carolyn Gatewood

K-State faculty and staff:

K-State Proud Week is here!

Below are three ways you can join students in reaching their goal of raising $120,000 for Student Opportunity Awards.

EDUCATE. Share with your colleagues the K-State Proud campaign’s message and encourage them to visit the website, www.k-stateproud.org, to learn more. Also, if you have a student in class wearing a 2012 Proud T-shirt, ask him or her to share the purpose of the campaign with his or her peers.

DONATE. Make sure to head to the K-State Student Union between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. any day this week to donate to help support Student Opportunity Awards and receive a 2012 Proud T-shirt as a gift for you contribution.

NOMINATE. As faculty and staff, you may be aware of students struggling financially, whose future educational pursuits at K-State are in jeopardy. When you come across these students, we encourage you to nominate them for an award by completing an application on our website.

Thank you for your continued support of this campaign and we look forward to seeing you this week!

K-State Proud,
