Staley School of Leadership Studies announces 2017-2018 class of Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows

Friday, March 31, 2017 


MANHATTAN — A select group of Kansas State University students will spend their senior year working on their leadership skills and potential through a program named in honor of the university's College Football Hall of Fame coach, Bill Snyder.

The Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows Program is offered through the university's Staley School of Leadership Studies.

"K-State head football coach Bill Snyder is known as a developer of leaders whose legacy continues to have a tremendous impact that extends far beyond the game of football," said Marcia Hornung, director of the Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows Program and instructor of leadership studies. "Coach Snyder's '16 Goals for Success' have been embraced by many as guiding principles for success in life: in family, community and career. The Staley School, in partnership with K-State Athletics, is honored to offer a program to facilitate leadership development for students based on coach Snyder's goals for success. Students were selected for the program based on their demonstrated leadership skills and potential."

Snyder fellows will engage in a variety of leadership development workshops, activities and events during the 2017-2018 academic year, kicking off with an intensive retreat in May. The program honors Snyder and his dedication to Kansas State University, the Staley School of Leadership Studies, his players and the university's students by continuing his work in developing high-impact leaders on campus, in their communities, in their states and beyond, Hornung said.
