Homecoming committee members selected to assist K-State Alumni Association with 2017 Homecoming activities

Posted March 31, 2017

Forty-seven Kansas State University students were recently selected to serve on the 2017 Homecoming student committee. Activities will take place Oct. 15 through Oct. 21, concluding with the football game against the University of Oklahoma on Oct. 21.

The week marks K-State’s 102nd Homecoming celebration. Homecoming is a universitywide celebration coordinated by the K-State Alumni Association and sponsored by AT&T.

The 2017 K-State Student Ambassadors also will serve on the committee. They are Paige Engle, Overland Park, Kansas; and Mario Garcia III, Shawnee, Kansas.

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 Marcus Kidd, assistant director of student programs for the Alumni Association. “The student leaders we’ve selected will help us continue to build on a century of successful Homecomings.”
