Congrats to Jazstyn Moyer!

The K-State Career Center wishes to congratulate Jazstyn Moyer, Student Life Center front desk worker and intramural student coordinator for Student Life on the Polytechnic campus, on her selection as winner of the Kyle Pelton Student Employee of the Year Award. Moyer is the first K-State Polytechnic student employee to receive this award.

Moyer, four finalists and 30 nominees were honored Apr. 14 in a virtual ceremony.
