Feb 26, 2013 1:35 PM | Print
The 57th Wichita State University Alumni Awards Banquet, originally slated for Thursday, Feb. 28, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, April 30, at the Wichita Marriott because of two winter storms that dumped a record-setting 21 inches of snow in the Wichita area.
WSU Alumni Association staff and board officers apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change of date, but the uncertainty of the weather and consideration of travel for out-of-town guests were paramount in the decision to reschedule this traditional event.
Honorees are Cleo Littleton '55, Achievement Award; Lynn Stephan '64, Alumni Recognition Award; Dave Dahl '71, Alumni Recognition Award; Connie Kachel White, Distinguished Service Award; and Alex Kanelakos '07, Young Alumnus Award.
Also to be recognized are the 10 individuals who have served the WSU Alumni Association as its administrative leaders: Esther Wenzel '34/34, Mickey Armstrong '45, Beulah Mullen '35/71, Ethel Jane King, Jane Gilchrist '68, Jim Moore '66/69, Mike Meacham '74, Lynda Sade '72, Brad Beets '87 and Debbie Kennedy '94.
For information about reservations already made or to make a reservation for the April 30 event, go to wichita.edu/awards or call (316) 978-3290 or (888) 316-2586.
