I have had the opportunity this year to serve as a K-State Proud Co-Chair. K-State Proud is an organization I got involved with Freshman year and it has had the biggest impact on my time at K-State.
As a reminder, K-State Proud is a student led philanthropic campaign on campus. We raised money to fund student opportunity awards. These awards go to students who have exhausted all forms of financial aid and are at risk of having to leave K-State. Last year alone, 70 students were able to continue their education at K-State because of K-State Proud. Over the last 6 years, K-State Proud has raised more than $550,000 for student opportunity awards. To learn more about K-State Proud, check out this video.
As a thank you for donating to the campaign, K-State Proud gives a free K-State Proud t-shirt to donors. These design of these t-shirts is done by students in the Matrix Design class on campus. All of the logos were narrowed down to three finalists to be voted on by students, faculty, alumni, fans, and friends. The voting is going on right now! Be sure to share your input on the logo here!
Be on the lookout for the winning logo! We are excited to continue to raise money to help keep every member of the K-State family achieve their goal of an education. If you have more questions about K-State Proud, leave a comment or check out the website here.
