MANHATTAN — Ten Kansas State University students have been selected for the annual Dean of Students Outstanding Graduating Senior Awards.

Thomas Lane, vice president for student life and dean of students, will present the awards at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, April 27, in the Flint Hills Room of the K-State Student Union. Family, friends, staff and faculty are invited to attend the celebration.

Cathleen Cowell, political science and international studies, Larned, is one of the awardees.

This award acknowledges the significant contributions of graduating seniors to student life during their K-State careers. Directors and staff members in the Division of Student Life on the Manhattan and Salina campuses nominate candidates, and the winners are selected by a committee.

“Each year I continue to be impressed by the significant contributions of our Outstanding Graduating Senior awardees,” said Lane. “This year’s awardees continue that legacy of K-State excellence. Each of them has worked diligently and creatively to improve the quality of student life at our university. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to recognize their accomplishments and thank them for the impactful leadership they have consistently shown throughout their time as students.”
