The K-State Alumni Association presents the Flinchbaugh Family Wildcat Pride Award to a current or emeritus K-State faculty or staff member for advocacy of alumni relations, with a special emphasis on support and participation in alumni programs that engage members of the Wildcat family.
The Wildcat Pride Award is made possible by the generosity of the Barry Flinchbaugh Family.
Because of Richard Myers' commitment to Kansas State University, the K-State Alumni Association has named him the recipient of the 2022 Flinchbaugh Family Wildcat Pride Award.
“Gen. Richard Myers has been a great friend and partner to the K-State Alumni Association, aiding our mission to lead and inspire lifelong involvement,” said Amy Button Renz ’76, ’86, president and CEO of the K-State Alumni Association. “He has always been an enthusiastic supporter of our efforts, attending alumni socials, gatherings, pep rallies and other special events. He helped us honor alumni, faculty and friends through our awards programs and always encourages the greater campus community to stay engaged with our programming efforts. Thank you, Gen. Myers, for your dedication to your alma mater. This is truly a fitting award to present as the late Professor Barry Flinchbaugh and President Myers had a very close friendship. Gen. Myers, the Alumni Association is honored to recognize you with the Flinchbaugh Family Wildcat Pride Award.”
