Looking back: Spring 2017 Trustees Meeting

Thank you to all trustees who attended our spring meeting in April!

There were so many highlights to this remarkable day, including the announcement of the Innovation and Inspiration Campaign extension, the celebration of Gib and Brenda Compton as K-State Medal of Excellence Award winners and an appearance by Coach Snyder!

Here’s a look back at this incredible day:

Greg Willems, president and CEO, shared a State of the Organization update, followed by a State of the University presentation by K-State President Richard Myers. You can access the presentation here.

Trustees enjoyed a Leadership Perspectives Panel with Willems, Myers, Alumni Association President Amy Button Renz, K-State Athletics Director Gene Taylor and then Deputy Athletics Director Laird Veatch.

Trustees were the first to hear the news that the Innovation and Inspiration Campaign has a new goal: $1.4 billion by the year 2020. More about this new phase in the campaign.
