MANHATTAN – Eighteen Kansas State University students have been named Dean of Student Life Outstanding Graduating Seniors. The awards were presented at an April 23 reception by Pat Bosco, K-State vice president for student life and dean of students. Payless Shoe Source is the signature corporate sponsor of the event.
The awards, first given in 1999, recognize the significant contributions these seniors made to two or more student life areas at K-State. Directors and staff members in the student life office nominated candidates and Bosco made the final selections.
“It’s always a difficult decision,” Bosco said, “because K-State has so many remarkable seniors who go out of their way to improve the campus experience for other students. But this group’s accomplishments really stand out.”
Each student received a plaque with a picture of him or her at a favorite place on campus.
