Anderson Senior Awards

Each year the K-State Alumni Association awards four Anderson Senior Awards to graduating seniors from across campus, and the College of Arts & Sciences is well represented in the history of this award. These awards annually recognize seniors for leadership, service, inspiration and academics. 

"We are excited to honor these individuals for what they have achieved at K-State," said Amanda Brookover, assistant director of student programs for the Alumni Association. "These winners were chosen from a group of exceptional candidates. We appreciate the efforts of the K-State faculty, staff and students and Alumni Association board of directors who nominated and selected these individuals for this outstanding recognition."

Last year, one of the four students selected for the Anderson Awards was from the College of Arts & Sciences:

Anderson Senior Award for Outstanding Service
Jonathan Bernard, biology, South Hutchinson, Kan.
