Six Kansas State University students have been selected to lead Student Alumni Board, a group of approximately 40 students who promote and serve the university and the K-State Alumni Association.

SAB members also coordinate and assist with Wildcats Forever Student Alumni Association, Grad Bash, the Distinguished Young Alumni Award, Junior Wildcats Club and other Alumni Association programs and events.

"These students have worked hard through Student Alumni Board and will continue to be great in their new leadership roles," said Marcus Kidd, SAB adviser and assistant director of student programs for the Alumni Association. "I look forward to watching these members work with the rest of SAB to continue elevating the programs we have in place."
