K-State Heroes

An introduction to K-State Heroes: Ordinary K-Staters doing extraordinary things.

They may not have superhuman abilities or exceptional strength, but take a closer look and you’ll find there are K-Staters performing extraordinary feats. 

Ordinary faculty, staff and students are stepping up and changing the world with vision, innovation and commitment. They work hard behind the scenes making the K-State family a better family; for our students, for our communities, for our world.

In the following stories, you will learn about just a few of the K-Staters how quietly work to solve problems, right wrongs, and promote the K-State way. We bet they’ll inspire you to think about how you can be a K-State hero, too.
