Stonestreet family creates scholarship for K-State students
Eric Stonestreet made his dreams come true, with help from his parents. Now Stonestreet and his parents are helping K-State theater students achieve their dreams. Stonestreet established the Vincent and Jamey Stonestreet Theatre Scholarship as a way to honor his parents, who supported his dream to pursue acting, and to provide financial assistance to upperclass students enrolled in the theater program in the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance in the College of Arts and Sciences.

“I wanted to do something for theater students and people at K-State who may have found their way to theater,” Stonestreet said. “I didn’t go to K-State to study theater, but ended up finding my way there. I was lucky and had the support of my parents. They were behind me with respect to whatever I decided to study. Not every kid has parents who are willing or able to help them out. It means a lot to my mom and dad that we can help those kids out. That’s what it’s really about.”

Brothers honor father with scholarship
Charles Eldon Clark taught his sons, Gary and Marvin, to serve their country and pay forward the help they receive from others. The Clark brothers learned those lessons well. Both served in the Air Force for a combined 53 years, each retiring at the rank of colonel, and now they’ve established a scholarship at Kansas State University in honor of their father.

The Clark Family Air Force ROTC Scholarship will be awarded to an undergraduate majoring in any curriculum and participating in the Air Force ROTC program in the College of Arts & Sciences at K-State.
