MANHATTAN – Twenty-nine Kansas State University students were recently selected to serve on the 2021 Homecoming student committee. Homecoming activities will take place Oct. 24-30.
The week marks K-State’s 106th Homecoming celebration. Homecoming is a university-wide celebration coordinated by the K-State Alumni Association.
A committee of K-State Alumni Association staff members selects students for the Homecoming student committee after an application review process. Homecoming committee members are responsible for selecting and planning all Homecoming events, creating rules and guidelines for student competitions, and promoting and staffing all events.
“Homecoming is one of K-State’s oldest traditions, and the Alumni Association has always played a role in welcoming K-Staters back to campus,” said Tamie Redding, assistant director of student programs for the Alumni Association. “These student leaders will help us continue to build on a century of cherished and memorable Homecomings.”
The 2021 K-State Student Ambassadors also will serve on the committee. They are Marissa Lux, junior in communication studies from Olathe, and Bennett Shipley, junior in marketing from Olathe.
Local students selected are Cathleen Cowell of Larned, junior in political science and international studies, and Molly Kaiser of Great Bend, sophomore in journalism.
