Letters from our recipients

Emily Cherry The Sarah Watson Memorial Scholarship


“I would like to express my extreme appreciation for the $5,000 scholarship I am receiving through your generosity. I have always put forth much effort in my academic career, including maintaining my 4.0 GPA in both my journalism and mass communications and secondary English education majors, and I am grateful that my hard work can be rewarded with an honor such as this scholarship. Your contribution will allow me to further my studies at K-State, and it will help me continue receiving and achieving excellence in education through my junior year. I am a 1999 DeSoto High School graduate and a resident of Shawnee, Kansas. My family moved to this state six years ago, and my parents, my younger brother and I have had wonderful experiences with the educational opportunities here. For example, I have been able to participate and excel in several outstanding journalism and English programs, which helped me develop my passion and talents for these arts. When I receive my B.A. and B.S. degrees, I will be the first college graduate in both my

immediate and extended families. I have always been encouraged to pursue the best life possible, and I believe a solid education is a key part of this strategy. Although my future career goals include a job in magazine journalism and/or teaching high school English, I understand that it is important to expand my horizons and be a well-rounded individual. I have enjoyed participating in a wide range of activities, including church youth groups, choir, sports, competitive forensics, drama productions and honor clubs. One of the most valuable experiences I became involved in this last year was volunteering for The Crisis Center in Manhattan, Kansas. After several training sessions, I worked in a safe home with women and children who were victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. I am hoping to return for another volunteer assignment next year. I have the mindset that the most significant purposes for my life concern touching the lives of others, whether it be through journalism, education, volunteerism or any other type of activity. Obviously, you think the same way. Thank you again for your gift.�

“The purpose of my letter is to thank you infinitely for awarding me your scholarship. The amount of the scholarship is $1,500. I really appreciate your monetary contribution toward my education. I’m a second semester freshman at Kansas State University with majors in biochemistry, Spanish and probably a minor in French. My current GPA is a 3.4 and I’m working hard toward raising it to a golden 4.0. I was born in Mexico, but Garden City, Kansas is the place I consider my hometown. I graduated from Garden City High School just a year ago. My family is the first generation to be in the United States. I am, so far, the only one from my family to graduate from high school and attend college in the United States. I’ve been elected president of HALO (Hispanic American Leadership Organization) for the 2001–2002 school year at K-State. I’m an associate member of Sigma Lambda Gamma and I was initiated into Sigma Delta Pi, the Spanish honorary society. I graduated high school with high honors and was named outstanding student in French III, Chemistry, Latin I and ESL. I obtained a silver medal at the National Latin Exam. I was the first ESL student to exit ESL classes and be accepted to National Honors Society during high school. I love biology, chemistry and foreign language classes and so far I’ve concentrated

all my time toward taking courses in those fields. I think I have a talent for learning foreign languages and I take advantage of it. So far I’ve taken classes in French, Latin, German and, of course, I’m a Spanish native speaker. After I graduate from K-State I plan to apply to medical school, probably the University of Kansas Medical School. This will be around 2004 or maybe 2005 due to my double major and the heavy set of courses that I should take. Again, this short letter cannot show how much I appreciate your help. I would love to thank you personally. The only way I can repay you is by being successful in my studies and by thanking you. Thank you very much!”

Alexander Sappok The Dean of Engineering Scholarship “I would like to offer you my sincerest thanks for the engineering scholarship in the amount of $2,000. Having worked part-time to pay for school my freshman year, this award now gives me more time to concentrate on my studies without having to rely


on work during the school year. In addition to the valuable financial help, an award such as this serves to remind students that hard work and achievement do not go unnoticed, even at a large university such as Kansas State. Growing up the son of German immigrants, my sister and I learned the importance of hard work and perseverance at an early age. As the oldest child, I am the first person in my family to attend college in the United States. However, I will soon be followed by my younger sister, who hopes to attend Kansas State in the fall of 2002 to pursue veterinary medicine. Graduating as the class valedictorian from Wichita Collegiate School in 2000, I began my first year of college at Kansas State University last fall. After being accepted to and visiting schools such as Duke, Dartmouth, Notre Dame and Washington University in St. Louis, I finally made the difficult choice of deciding on a school and picked Kansas State University. I chose K-State for a number of reasons, the most important of which were the quality of the engineering program, the vast number of opportunities available to students both in and out of the classroom and its superior value. Coming from a rather small high school, I have been pleasantly surprised by the ‘small school’ atmosphere at this large institution.

I am currently pursuing a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering. I finished up my first year with a 4.0 grade point average each semester and earned a cumulative total of 79 credit hours, which includes my high school transfer credit. I was also selected as one of four finalists for the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society’s Underclassman of the Year award. In addition to engineering, I am currently pursuing a minor in German language. This year I also completed a course in German composition and a 700 level course in German film and fiction. In only my first year at K-State, I have attempted to take advantage of every opportunity I have been given. Seeking to pursue my interests in both engineering and German, I applied through the international office and will be studying mechanical engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland for a large portion of the current school year. Upon graduation from K-State, I plan to attend graduate school to earn a master’s degree in mechanical engineering. Eventually I hope to utilize both my engineering and German skills with a career in the automotive industry. Once again, I would like to sincerely thank you for your generous gift, which has made this scholarship possible. I hope that I, too, may one day be in a position to give back and help give others the opportunities which have been made available to me through actions such as yours.”

“I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation of being honored with the $1,200 Ada L. Swineford Memorial Scholarship. I transferred to Kansas State University in the summer of 1999 and enrolled in geology and the dual degree program of natural resources and environmental science. From the moment I entered Thompson Hall, I knew I’d made one of the best decisions of my life. I feel very privileged to be a part of such a close-knit, dynamic group of individuals that is the Department of Geology. I volunteered for the job of re-creating the departmental library that was lost as a result of the reconfiguration of the second floor when handicapped facilities were installed in the building. I spent seven months organizing all the library materials, cataloguing them and assembling a new library. As I opened the boxes of materials from the original library, I learned about the people who started the long line of dedication to the department and support for all who study there. There were several books that bore the name of Ada L. Swineford and I was excited to touch a piece of her past; Dr. Oviatt has often mentioned her accomplishments. As I catalogued these resources that students will be able to use to advance their knowledge in the area of geology, I thumbed through a couple books that once lined her desk or library. A fan of post rock since I came to Kansas, imagine my surprise when the faculty presented me with a copy of

Katherine A. Tietsort The Ada L. Swineford Memorial Scholarship Land of the Post Rock written, in part, by none other than Ada Swineford, at the library grand opening ceremony. My husband followed up by surprising me with a piece of my own post rock for the front yard. Honestly, each time I look at the post rock, I think of Ada Swineford and my immediate interest in something she had studied. This is why receiving this particular scholarship means such a great deal to me. It is important not only because it will cover the majority of my tuition, books and supplies in my first year of graduate school, but also because I feel proud to have been honored

with the Ada L. Swineford Memorial Scholarship. My grateful acceptance of this scholarship is made with high expectations that I, too, someday, will contribute something to the study of geology that would not otherwise have been contributed. I certainly appreciate the scholarship. Thank you for the opportunity you have given me by choosing to contribute to my graduate education. I accept it with fond memories of the Ada Swineford I wish I could have met.�


Letters from our donors “We all know how quickly time passes and how easy it is to postpone our financial support of the KSU Foundation. But the time to aid our KSU students is now. We’ve found that the joy of helping students through scholarships has repaid us many times over. It has been our experience that giving a KSU student a boost gives us a boost as well! Looking to the future, we realize that an educated citizenry is essential to a strong country. Supporting the KSU Foundation scholarship program will help bring that about.”

Keith and Marian Mull “Kansas State University has been, and is, a significant part of our lives. We met at K-State, our children are all K-State graduates and we have been involved through the years with the foundation, the alumni association and our separate colleges. We have always felt that our degrees are only as good as our university. To excel, as our university does, requires private funding from alumni and friends. It gives us great satisfaction to support K-State and its programs.”

Chuck and Georgia Chandler 6

Letter from the President “I want to thank the many donors whose generosity is helping to secure K-State’s future. To our individual alumni and friends, to our corporate friends and to the family and corporate foundations whose contributions all further our mission — I offer my heartfelt thanks. For public universities throughout the country, a gap exists between funding the state provides and support universities truly need to fulfill their missions. That gap is the difference between surviving and thriving. Mere survival is not acceptable to K-Staters, and that’s why your contributions are so very important. You create the margin that enables K-State to grow and to thrive! Since 1986, K-State has added nearly 1.6 million square feet in new buildings and additions to buildings. Although the state provided partial funding for these projects, they would not have been possible without private support. Your contributions during the past year alone have had a tremendous impact on our ability to provide significant enhancements to campus buildings. All of these projects were financed totally by private gifts or in partnership with the state of Kansas. In fiscal year 2001, private support for capital projects totaled $7.1 million. Buildings completed or initiated last year include: ◆ Fiedler Hall in the College of Engineering ◆ Stone House Ruth Hoeflin Early Childhood Education Center and C.Q. and Georgia Chandler Institute for Child and Family Studies ◆ Alumni Center ◆ University Gardens ◆ Student Union Improvements ◆ Frank Myers Field Renovation ◆ Ackert Hall Addition

Dr. Jon Wefald $11 million for student support through scholarships, loans and stipends. ◆ $3.5 million for faculty support including several Faculty of Distinction chairs, which produce income that is matched by the state. ◆ $13 million in program support that includes funding for research, academic support for classrooms and labs and support for Hale Library. ◆ $9.9 million in restricted and unrestricted donations for administrative support and other university needs including general scholarships. ◆

Altogether, donors contributed $44.5 million to New or renovated space accommodates technol- K-State through the KSU Foundation last year. Those ogy that is key to today’s learning environment. These dollars mean that we continued to thrive. improvements also continue to enhance K-State’s Our future beckons and it holds incredible prombeautiful campus. ise for us as an institution, and for the students who What else did donors provide to the margin of seek not just knowledge, but also enlightenment, excellence during the past year? I think you’ll agree from Kansas State University. I hope you will conthat the list is amazing: tinue to contribute to the realization of that future.”


Letter to our donors Dear Friends: It is a pleasure to report on fiscal year 2001 — the most successful in the history of the Kansas State University Foundation. K-State’s loyal alumni and friends contributed $44.5 million in support of the university this year. Combined with more than $16 million in pledges and bequests, the total gift activity for the year exceeded $60 million. This was the sixth consecutive year of recordbreaking contributions, and this year’s total was more than double the amount raised in 1996. It will come as no surprise then, to report that K-State alumni, who have ranked in the top 10 in alumni philanthropic giving among public research/doctoral institutions for a decade, climbed into the number four spot in the nation last year with 23 percent of our alumni making donations. This year’s report also introduces you to some of the people whose lives you have touched through your generosity. Read their letters, look into their faces and you will see that philanthropy is much more than the numbers alone can ever illustrate. The future of this great university has never been more promising. Your continued support will ensure the realization of that future. For your past — and your future — contributions, we extend our heartfelt thanks and our pledge that your contributions will be stewarded with great care.

Anthony Johnson

“I would like to extend my appreciation and thanks for giving me this opportunity to receive this scholarship. I am a junior in secondary education with a double emphasis in history and Spanish. I anticipate graduating in December of 2003. After graduation, I plan to teach Spanish in a postsecondary school. I believe that with the Hispanic population on the rise in today’s society, bilingual education will be an important issue. Some activities I am involved in are Silver Key Sophomore Honorary Club, Student Senate, Kansas

National Education Association, English Conversational Program and the Study Abroad Club. Next year, I plan to study in Mexico, taking enhancement courses in the Spanish language and Mexican cultural history. I have had Spanish in high school, and taken three semesters of Spanish at Kansas State University. This fall I will continue in my Spanish courses and take Elementary Spanish Conversation. Also this fall I will join HALO, a Hispanic organization at Kansas State University that promotes diversity within the campus.”

The Jo Harriett Hofsess Popkins Scholarship

“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity. The $1,200 scholarship is more than I ever expected to receive and I am so grateful. This scholarship is going to make my last two semesters at Kansas State University much easier to finance. I live 65 miles outside Manhattan in Cloud County. My husband farms in the area and my two children attend school in the Clifton-Clyde school district, just as my husband and I did. Therefore, I drive to Manhattan every day to attend classes. This scholarship has come as a great relief to us and I want to express my utmost gratitude to you.


I am a senior in Family and Consumer Sciences Education and my GPA is 4.0. I will graduate in May 2002. I am a member of the Alpha Chi Chapter of Phi Upsilon Omicron and on the Dean’s List 2000. Following graduation, I plan to teach at the middle school level and/or the high school level in the Cloud County or surrounding area. In closing, I just want to say thank you again. I am very appreciative of this scholarship and I am going to continue to make my education a priority so that I can be the kind of teacher that the children of the community need to succeed.”

Jonathon Mitchell The Max E. and Jean Hollinger Scholarship “I am a graduate of Junction City High School and I come from a family of five. I have two brothers who never went to college and a father who waited until he was 35 to get his degree. This scholarship made my parents prouder than they had ever been. My mother is the only member of her family who did not gain a college degree. She cried happy tears following the awards banquet where the students were recognized for their achievements. My current GPA is at 3.6 and my cumulative should be right around 3.00. My grades have been really hard to maintain because I have been working many jobs in an effort

to afford all of my expenses. Last fall I was working more than 60 hours a week to make ends meet. This scholarship will make it possible for me to focus on my education and allow me to devote more time to my studies. In 1998, I spearheaded an effort to get a skate park built in Junction City. After a year we had raised $15,000 and successfully applied for and received a $40,000 grant from the state. Now the park is built and every year I organize a tournament to celebrate the park’s success. If it were not for people such as you, many opportunities would not be available for students at Kansas State.”

Clubs and Organizations

“My name is Chris Hernandez and I am writing this letter to express my sincere thanks for your gift to Kansas State University. I was honored to receive the Dow Chemical scholarship valued at $2,500 a semester for two years. I will graduate in May with an electrical engineering degree and I cannot express how much this scholarship has facilitated my success. To tell you a little more about why this has impacted me so much, I need to discuss my family. My grandfather settled in the United States when he was 18 years old. He left Mexico City, with nothing more than a suitcase, to work for the Santa Fe Railroad. Needless to say, times weren’t always easy, but he definitely persevered. When I think about what he was doing at 22 years of age, I am totally humbled by the idea of working three jobs,

supporting a family and learning a totally new language all at the same time. He sacrificed for the good of the family, and for that I am truly grateful. I realize that by Dow Chemical awarding such a scholarship to me, it was not only a positive for myself, but one for the whole family. Knowing how hard my grandfather worked pushes me to work my hardest and aim for the top. To be awarded for this hard work makes me feel very honored. The Dow scholarship has allowed me not only to devote time to my studies, but to get involved with student organizations as well. Getting off on the right foot for my career was a goal coming into college, and Dow Chemical has helped me achieve this. I know many times you do not hear of the lives you have touched, but I can firmly say you have touched my entire family.”

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with Honors from Texas A&M University in May 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in animal science, and immediately began my graduate work in beef cattle nutrition at Kansas State University. I am originally from Rosenberg, Texas, which is located just southwest of Houston. For the last four years, I have been a proud member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2001. As a student at Texas A&M, I was able to maintain a 3.8 GPA and still be involved in a variety of activities including student government, class council, College of Agriculture Student Council, freshman orientation camp counselor and various activities within the Department of Animal Science. I was honored to be

named the outstanding sophomore for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in 1999 and this year I was proud to be added to the list of Who’s Who Among American College Students in 2001. My past four years at Texas A&M have been great, and now I am very excited to become a K-State Wildcat. I look forward to the many opportunities and challenges ahead of me. Many of the faculty and staff at Texas A&M recommended Kansas State. I had made two trips to visit the campus and, after spending time on campus and meeting the faculty, I now understand why KSU is held in such high regard. My expectations were high and I was not disappointed. Again, I sincerely appreciate the interest you have shown in me and your financial support is greatly appreciated. Many thanks!”


Ford Motor Co. and Grambling State establish diversity partnership with K-State


Ford Motor Company has contributed $40,000 to the Kansas State University Foundation to establish the Ford Motor Company/Grambling State University/KSU Diversity Partnership. The goal of this partnership is to expand upon the educational relationship between Grambling State University, Grambling, La., and Kansas State University, which started in 1968. The new partnership will provide highly educated and trained graduates of color for internships with Ford Motor Company, while diversifying the educational experience of all KSU students. With this partnership, two qualified GSU graduates of any major will each receive $20,000 annually to pursue the master of business administration (MBA) degree at KSU. Currently, an MBA degree program does not exist at GSU. KSU will benefit through the increase in diversity of its graduate business student population. The two current recipients of this fellowship are Andrea Dixon, Tallulah, La., and Christopher Boozer, Phoenix, Ariz., pictured on the opposite page. Ford Motor Company is the world’s second largest automaker, with approximately 380,000 employees in 200 markets on six continents. Its vision is to become the world’s leading consumer company for automotive products and services.

The KSU Foundation holds endowed funds in perpetuity, investing the principal and using a portion of the annual investment return to support the programs agreed upon by the donor and the university. The portion of the investment return that is disbursed is determined by the spending policy set by the Executive Committee. Investment earnings that exceed the spending policy are returned to the principal to create an inflation buffer. ◆ Gifts of $10,000 or more may be endowed ◆ More than 2,200 endowed funds are currently under management by the KSU Foundation ◆ $15 million of the $44.5 million raised in 2001 were permanently endowed funds that will provide support to KSU for generations to come

$35 million disbursed to K-State The Kansas State University Foundation provided over $35 million to K-State in fiscal year 2001, for undergraduate and graduate student scholarships; faculty chairs, professorships and lectureships; capital improvements; departmental support and administrative expenses.


Most contributions received through the foundation are designated for a specific purpose. Undesignated gifts are given to a college or to the university for use in the area of greatest need. Regardless of whether a gift is designated or undesignated, each gift ultimately enhances the university’s ability to provide students with the means to develop their potential as contributing members of a global society.

Investments weather a tough year The Investment Advisory Committee, working with our consultants and staff, continues to implement enhancements in the investment process despite the difficult world market situation. In an ongoing effort to enhance the return and reduce the risk to foundation assets, the committee continues making modifications to the investment process. Improvements completed in fiscal year 2001 included the following: ◆ Completed implementation of marketable alternative sector investments in the alternative strategies asset allocation ◆ Eliminated remaining indexing of inefficient asset classes to capture added value of active management ◆ Began addition of shorting strategies in volatile asset classes to reduce downside volatility of returns ◆ Evaluated portfolio liquidity versus liquidity needs

Initiated expansion of private capital allocation into international private equities ◆ Added an absolute return investment to the Expendable Fund asset allocation to reduce volatility and enhance returns to the core allocation ◆ Updated investment policy for Pooled Endowment Fund A ◆ Formalized a backup plan for the Vice President-Real Estate and Investments position as part of the departmental disaster recovery program ◆

Despite the difficult market environment of the past 12 months, the investment strategies in place produced a (3.34%) return to the endowment for the fiscal year. Lee Borck, Chairman

Townsend scholars

Roxann Corcoran, Grant Reynolds, Danielle Bailey and Byron McFee, all graduates of Decatur Community High School in Oberlin, Kansas, are recipients of the Colonel Delbert L. Townsend Scholarship.


“I would like to thank you once again for your wonderful gift of generosity. As the class valedictorian, a successful forensics competitor, an involved and dedicated student and a diligent worker, I know I have been chosen on criteria other than financial need. My financial need, however, significantly increases the gift’s value to me. Instead of working full-time, I am able to work part-time and enjoy the college experience in its entirety.”

“This scholarship is important to me because without it, I would probably be going to a much smaller community college right now. I would not have had this wonderful opportunity to pursue a career in engineering. I also want to thank you for communicating with your recipients. It is very neat that you take the time to write your students and make an impact in their lives. Thank you so much for this award.”

“This scholarship that you have provided me is truly a blessing. It gives me the opportunity to reach my educational goals and my dream of becoming a veterinarian. It also gives me the chance to place my focus on my education and takes the financial worry out of my college experience. For this, I could never thank you enough. Thanks again for this amazing experience. It has been even more of an honor to get to know you.”

“This year I am a freshman in engineering. I am on the K-State men’s rowing team, and in honors engineering. I plan to graduate in the spring of 2005. It is very exciting to have received such a large scholarship. I worked very hard throughout high school and was involved in many things. I feel hard work is a necessity for success, no matter what you are doing. I am continuing this hard work right here at Kansas State University.”
