A look back at the spring meeting

More than 200 members of the KSU Foundation Board of Trustees gathered on Friday, April 20 for a day full of updates, celebrations and action!

In the morning, attendees received an update on the State of the Organization, an update from K-State President Richard Myers and a presentation from the Huron Group. Thanks to your contributions to the Trustees Excellence Fund, K-State was able to engage this strategic enrollment management consulting group to study enrollment trends.

Bill Stolzer was recognized for his 50th anniversary as a member of the KSU Foundation Board of Trustees. His daughter, Mary Kevin Stolzer, who is also a trustee, was in attendance to celebrate this remarkable milestone. Congratulations, Bill!

We also celebrated transformational naming gifts to the College of Engineering from Board of Trustees members.
