Open House succeeds


Fellow Students,

As we begin to wrap up the semester, I am pleased to say “Believing in You” has never meant more to me. Several recent accomplishments across the K-State campus have truly reaffirmed how rewarding it is to lead such a great student body.

The crops team has done it again. Recently, they brought home their ninth national championship in the past 12 years. The team placed first in the laboratory, math and identification components, and second in the exam component of the competition. Congratulations to Coach Donnelly and his team. Keep up the great work.

A special congratulations goes to Jackie Hartman, who has been named K-State’s first Director of Community Relations and Assistant to the President. Annie and I are pleased to welcome you back to campus and look forward to working with you in the future.

This past weekend, I’m proud to say we showed future Wildcats what K-State is all about at the annual All-University Open House. Thank you to everyone who decked out in purple and got involved in the festivities. Special thank you to Dr. Emily Lehning, Assistant Vice President of New Student Services, and Donnie Hampton, senior in management information systems. The day would not have been the same without your hard work and dedication.

Make sure to stay tuned as City Commission begins to hold meetings to examine possible routes and the major needs for mass transit in the Manhattan area.

Keep up the great work, K-Staters, and have a great week.
