This day is put on by K-State Polytechnic's Student Veteran's Association.

Danielle Brown receives Rising Star award for continuing education
Danielle Brown, director of the campus's professional education and outreach department, has recently been honored for her dedication to education.

In St. Louis on Tuesday, Brown was given the Rising Star award by the Association for Continuing Higher Education. This is a national award and she was joined by two other collegiate staff from South Carolina and Georgia on stage. 

A 'Rising Star' is considered an outstanding rising leader and program developer at one of the ACHE member institutions or organizations. They must have no more than five years of experience working in the field of adult and continuing education and have developed, significantly contributed to the development of, or extended an outstanding program or division within a continuing education unit.

Congratulations Danielle!
Aviation alums return to campus to teach class
The polytechnic campus recently welcomed back alumni Tom Karcz and Ryan Shamberger to fill in as teachers for one of professor Jimmy Splichal's classes.

The former aviation students taught Splichal's Air Carrier Operations class. Tom (right) is a 2001 graduate and former faculty member of Kansas State Polytechnic. He now works as a pilot for Textron Aviation. Ryan (left) is a 2000 graduate and now flies as a pilot for Southwest Airlines. 

We appreciate them taking time out of their personal schedules to connect with current students and pass along their aviation wisdom.

A high-five is one of the most recognizable ways two people can share excitement or celebrate a job well done. K-State Salina's CEO and Dean Verna Fitzsimmons awards her high-five each week to honor faculty, staff and students for their dedication to the university.
High-Five to Bill Gross!
Sending out a high-five to Bill Gross, as he was recently renewed by Master Instructors LLC as a master certified flight instructor. Bill is one of only 26 pilots worldwide to earn this prestigious title.

Congratulations, Bill!
