A message from Coach Bill Snyder

By K-State Athletics

As I stood outside the K-State Alumni Center Thursday night after participating in an event for graduate school students and waiting for my ride, I was approached by a young lady — either a student or a writer for one of the university departments, or both — who asked me if she could pray for me. She broke into tears and offered up a heartwarming, meaningful prayer for my recovery.

The point of this message, aside from how meaningful this young lady is to me and how much I appreciate her for her thoughtfulness, is once again proof of what I have said for the past three decades: Kansas State University is about people who care about people. We are a unique community where our concerns for others are genuine, unselfish and unified. Don’t ever allow that to change.

And thank you again, young lady — I appreciate you so very much.

Bill Snyder
