Outstanding scholarship, leadership and service has earned 29 Kansas State University students membership in Chimes, the junior honorary, for the 2011-2012 school year.
New members of Chimes are selected the spring semester of their sophomore year based on various criteria, including their service and leadership to K-State students. Students also must have at least a 3.0 grade point average to be considered for membership.
Members participate in monthly volunteer projects that serve the Manhattan community both on and off campus. Past service projects have included the Fun Run sponsored by the Manhattan Cross Country Club and the Caffeine Fix at Hale Library for students during finals week. Chimes also assists with K-State’s Family Day activities in the fall, including the selection of the university’s honorary family of the year.
