Alumni association announces Anderson Senior Award and Graduate Award recipients

This spring marks the 15th annual Anderson Senior Awards and the third annual Graduate Awards program initiated by the K-State Alumni Association to honor outstanding students for their contributions to the university. 

The Anderson Awards program involves the selection of one senior in each of four categories: leadership, service, academics and inspiration. The Graduate Awards program selects one graduate student in two categories: leadership/service and academics. Nominations were made by students, faculty and staff, and a selection committee narrowed down the nominees to one winner in each category.

Anderson Senior Award for Outstanding Inspiration

The recipients will be recognized at a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the Tadtman Board Room at the K-State Alumni Center.
