Recognizing students for leadership and service

On Sunday, May 3, students, faculty, staff, friends and family from the Staley School of Leadership Studies and across Kansas State University gathered to recognize the success and honor the achievements of several K-State students at the Celebrating Service and Leadership awards program.

For the first time since the inception of this awards program, the event took place digitally over Zoom and Facebook Live. While guests could not gather physically, the importance and value of coming together was not lost in this virtual event.

“These awards, these students who receive them, are so deserving of recognition, however we are able to come together to celebrate,” said Mary Hale Tolar, director of the Staley School.

“The recipients of these awards have demonstrated time and again what it means to demonstrate leadership in service to their communities. In their student organizations, in the classroom, through service-learning and more, they go above and beyond.”
