A letter from Student Body President Jack Ayres

By Jack Ayres

Wildcats,

I hope everybody got the opportunity to enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation last week. As we look ahead to the final weeks of the semester, I hope everybody is eager to end the semester on a strong note. Part of creating a strong end to the semester is to continue to reflect on what was shared at KSUnite.

We have an incredible opportunity to be innovative in the way that we combat hatred and bigotry; these are issues that mirror a larger, nationwide challenge. It's the Wildcat Way to work together to advance our campus and exercise some leadership in this way. We have strength in our diverse K-State community and the unique role that each person plays in advancing our beloved university. Thus, I'd ask that everybody continue to ponder President Myers' questions: When you look to the future of our university, what do you see? What steps must we take to make those visions realities? What can you, personally, commit to doing to make that happen? Let us not let others define our values here at K-State. Let us be resilient!

I want to thank all of you who attended KSUnite and participated in discussions around education, reflection and action. The ideas shared in those discussions are being compiled and reviewed to help us determine the next steps moving forward. It is imperative that we keep up this momentum. The KSUnite website is up to date with news and updates around the event and associated action steps moving forward.

I wish you all the best on final exams and thank you again for your dedication and passion to this spot that we love full well.

K-State Proud,

Jack Ayres
Student Body President
