Thirteen Kansas State Universit students are being recognized for their contributions to the university with the Dean of Student Life Outstanding Graduating Senior Award. 


MANHATTAN — Kansas State University Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students Thomas Lane has selected 13 students for the Dean of Student Life Outstanding Graduating Senior Award.

Inaugurated in 1999, the award recognizes seniors on the Manhattan campus and the Kansas State Polytechnic Campus in Salina for their significant contributions to student life during their time at K-State. Staff members in the Division of Student Life nominate students they find deserving of the award. Final award winners are recommended to Lane by a committee of student life staff members.

"Though we have many students who have made a meaningful contribution to improving student life at the university, I am greatly pleased to recognize these 13 seniors identified by others as truly making their mark throughout their time at K-State," Lane said. "I thank them for their hard work in making a better K-State for all Wildcats."
