Today marks an ending and a new beginning. This is my last column to you as your Student Body President. It hardly seems possible that Wayne’s and my year of service has gone by so quickly, but I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my last year here at K-State.
All the hours planning and all the speeches given boil down to one truly profound year of opportunity for Wayne and me. It has been an honor to serve the K-State student body, and we thank you for this unforgettable experience.
Whether it was welcoming President Schulz to K-State for the first time, flying in the K-State jet, or having free access to purple pride Call Hall ice cream, this year was an irreplaceable experience for both Wayne and me.
As much as we have loved our term, we are very excited to begin the new transitions with your newly elected Student Body President and Vice President: Danny Unruh and Annie Oliver.
Danny Unruh, senior in Food Sciences & Industry and Political Science, is truly a wildcat by heart and home. Danny’s hometown is right here in Manhattan, KS. Annie Oliver, senior in Life Sciences, hails from Prairie Village, KS. The newly elected team is very excited to begin their year of service to the student body.
Danny and Annie ran on the slogan “Believing in You.” Their platforms included: a a belief in financial accountability, a new educational experience, and a sustainable future. They both look forward to working this next year to fulfill the platforms and promises they have committed to you.
I think I speak not only for Wayne and myself, but also Danny and Annie, when I say that the K-State students truly make serving as the Student Body President and Vice-President a dream come true. Because of you, K-State is not only a family but a home. Thank you for an amazing four years, K-State.
