K-State alumnus leads major effort at K-State
I’ve become more active at K-State because I am leading a major effort in remodeling the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house. As a student, I was a member of the fraternity, and now I’ve put an investment group together that will provide the means to expand Pi Kappa Alpha at K-State. Being a KSU Foundation Trustee is a way of giving back to the university and provides opportunities for the future. It’s been neat to be closer to President Myers and the rest of the university.
I began attending board of trustee meetings as a guest of Bruce and Jan Adams who are trustees. I was good friends with Bruce; we went to graduate school together. I thought it was interesting to see how the meetings operated.
Before becoming a trustee at K-State, I began contributing to the Throckmorton Scholarship. I contributed to the scholarship along with another alumni from my fraternity. When I realized the Throckmorton Scholarship was managed by the KSU Foundation, it gave me an incentive to become a trustee.
