Monday, Nov. 9, 2015

MANHATTAN — Academic success has earned several Kansas State University multicultural students membership in the university's Multicultural Student Honor Society.

The society was founded in 1999 to honor multicultural students who have been successful academically at the university.

"K-State students have a rich history of academic excellence, and the new Multicultural Student Honor Society members carry on a rich tradition of success in the classroom. The K-State organization stands as the model for other universities," said Carla Jones, assistant vice president and senior associate dean of students. Jones also serves as the honor society's adviser.

The honor society recognizes students who have persisted to the sophomore year, with 45 credit hours and beyond, and who have a cumulative university grade point average of at least 3.0.

"Transfer students at the sophomore level who have completed at least one semester at K-State are also eligible," Jones said.

The following students are new member of the Kansas State University Multicultural Student Honor Society:

Brandon Tran, senior in architectural engineering, Garden City.

From Greater Kansas City:Chloe Nelson, sophomore in communication studies, Kansas City; Zuleica Gerardo, senior in parks management and conservation, Olathe; and Miranda Snyder, junior in journalism and mass communications, Shawnee.
