K-State Alumni Association seeks nominations from faculty, staff for Alumni Excellence Award

By Tim Schrag

Thanks to the generosity of the Curt and Sherry Frasier family, the K-State Alumni Association is introducing an award to recognize Kansas State University alumni who make a difference in their communities, their countries and the world — the Alumni Excellence Award. This is the K-State Alumni Association's highest award honoring K-State's distinguished graduates.

The award will be given annually, recognizing an alumnus or alumna of Kansas State University whose career, service and achievements exemplify the spirit, values and excellence of the university. It carries on the tradition of the K-State Alumni Association's past Alumni Medallion Award, which was presented from 1969 to 2004 and recognized alumni whose humanitarian service added measurably to the quality of life.

The K-State Alumni Association will recognize the 2016 recipient during an inaugural Alumni Excellence Award banquet Oct. 7.

Nominations are being accepted through May 1 for the 2016 Alumni Excellence Award. Criteria for consideration include:

• The nominee's career endeavors have achieved national and/or international recognition.

• The nominee has contributed service to his or her local, state, national or international community.

• The nominee has the highest standards of integrity and character that exemplify the spirit of Kansas State University.

To learn more about the award or to nominate someone for the award, visit www.K-State.com/Excellence. For questions, contact Michelle Elkins, associate director of awards and special events for the K-State Alumni Association, at 785-532-5077 or MElkins@K-state.com.
