MANHATTAN — The 2021-2022 Blue Key Honor Society class has been selected for Kansas State University. The 18 senior students will have unique opportunities to serve the campus and the local community through mentorship, leadership and service throughout the upcoming year.

Membership eligibility in Blue Key is based on all-around leadership in student life, high scholastic achievement, service to others, citizenship and adherence to faith principles. Blue Key Honor Society recognizes upper-level students at colleges and universities throughout the nation for an exemplary and balanced record of achievement inside and outside the classroom. At K-State, membership is reserved for students with senior standing.

Throughout their year as members of Blue Key Honor Society, the seniors will have the opportunity to lead various programs, including Quest Freshman Honorary, Catalyst: A Self-Development Program, and the DiscoverU Conference for high school students. Members also will have the opportunity to facilitate YouLead Workshops to various organizations and groups, award Blue Key endowed scholarships to K-State students, and organize a Leadership Appreciation Reception for student leaders across campus.
