Yarrow actively supports the teaching profession at K-State by serving on educational committees and providing teaching guidance through speaking events.

She is a guest speaker in numerous classes and also presents to graduate teaching assistants. Yarrow is a proud mother to three children, Johnathan, Laura Beth and Katie, all who graduated with degrees from K-State.
The Professor of the Week recognition is coordinated by Faculty Senate, the president's office, K-State Athletics and the Division of Communications and Marketing. Recipients are faculty members selected by Faculty Senate caucuses. Those selected are provided tickets to a men's home basketball game of their choosing and are recognized during halftime. This is just a small token of appreciation for those who teach at K-State.
