Distinguished Young Alumni Awards

The Distinguished Young Alumni program is in its fourth year. It recognizes two Kansas State University graduates who are excelling in their professions and contributing to their communities.

The program is sponsored by the K-State Alumni Association’s Student Alumni Board and the Board of Directors. We encourage you to honor your outstanding graduates by nominating them for this award.

Anyone in the Kansas State University community may nominate a graduate for the Distinguished Young Alumni Award. The individual must be 35 or younger and have graduated from Kansas State University.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Kourtney Bettinger and Clemente Jaquez are the 2016 Distinguished Young Alumni award recipients.
