UAS program invited to Ag Tech event with Senator Pat Roberts
Kansas State Polytechnic's UAS program was included in a recent event with Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts.

UAS program manager, Kurt Carraway, took part in a roundtable discussion on Nov. 13 about the future of farming. The event, called Ag Tech, was hosted by the Senate Agriculture Committee.

Our unmanned aircraft systems, or UAS, program also performed a flight demonstration for Sen. Roberts, showing the capabilities UAS can have on the agricultural industry.

Aviation students tour Republic Airways facilities
Another great example of the polytechnic difference! Thanks to aviation maintenance professors Drew Smith and Stephen Ley for taking several aviation students to Kansas City to explore Republic Airways' hangar. They also met with pilots and maintenance and corporate staff to learn about careers in the aviation industry. 

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 Danielle Brown for her recent national award!
A big high-five goes out to Danielle Brown in professional education and outreach who was given the Rising Star award by the Association for Continuing Higher Education! This award highlights an individual's dedication to higher education and who has been involved with the development of an outstanding continuing education department.
