Alpha Zeta Chapter brings home national awards

Submitted by Maggie Seiler

The Alpha Zeta Agriculture Honorary Fraternity at K-State received recognition at the National Agricultural Leadership Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The honorary was named the 2015 Rising Star, which is an award that honors an up-and-coming chapter that is dedicated to implementing new ideas and growing their members professionally and personally.

K-State's Alpha Zeta chancellor Kelsie Hoss was named the Alpha Zeta Chancellor of the Year. This national recognition is awarded to a university chapter chancellor who exhibits exceptional leadership skills in guiding his or her chapter. Hoss worked tirelessly over the past year to promote Alpha Zeta at K-State and its programming. She guided the chapter through changes in chapter admittance policy and helped initiate Alpha Zeta's newest philanthropy, Ask A Farmer week. Her efforts have earned her the title of National Chancellor of the Year and have laid a foundation for future K-State Alpha Zeta chapters to build on.

Yuda Ou, senior in food science, and Gylee Martin, a senior in agricultural economics, represented the K-State Alpha Zeta chapter at the National Agricultural Leadership Conference and Biennial Conclave. K-State alumnus, Jackie Mundt, was named the 2015 High Chancellor replacing the 2014 High Chancellor, Kayle Robben, who also is a K-State alumnus.

Alpha Zeta, formed in 1897 at Ohio State University is a professional organization of men and women whose educational and career objectives fall within the field of agriculture and natural resources. Members of the organization strive to develop and promote leadership based on common values and integrity.

The Kansas State University chapter of Alpha Zeta is dedicated to focusing on education and service holding events such as a yearly universitywide speaker and Ask a Farmer week. For more information about Alpha Zeta or the events it sponsors, please contact Chancellor Elizabeth Stone, estone@k-state.edu.
