Seven earn Dean of Student Life Outstanding Graduating Senior Award

Thursday, April 21, 2022



MANHATTAN — Seven Kansas State University students are the newest honorees of the annual Dean of Student Life Outstanding Graduating Senior Award.

Thomas Lane, vice president for student life and dean of students, will present the awards at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, April 28, at the Tallgrass Ballroom in the Kramer Dining Center. Email the student life office at vpsl@k-state.edu to RSVP to attend in person or request a Zoom link to join virtually.

For more than 20 years, the awards are the acknowledgment of the significant contributions of graduating seniors to student life during their K-State career. Directors and staff members in the Division of Student Life on the Manhattan and Salina campuses nominate candidates and the winners are selected by a committee.

"Each of our Outstanding Graduating Senior awardees has made a unique contribution to improving student life at K-State," Lane said. "It is an honor to recognize and thank them for the impactful leadership they have consistently shown throughout their time as a student. I am confident they will continue to do K-State proud as they transition to alumni and I am excited to see what their future holds for them."
