Graduation Year: 2019

Hometown: Baldwin City, KS

Favorite Memory:

I get compliments from time to time on the phone, and I was told by one person that I should drop out of computer science and instead go into sales because of the performance I had on the phone. That was a real booster to the day.

I wouldn’t say that I have an exact single favorite memory of talking with a donor but I really enjoy talking with donors near my hometown and finding a personal connection with each donor.

Graduation Year: 2019

Hometown: Olathe, KS

Favorite Memory:

My favorite memory is one with someone who is a recent graduate but is still finding ways to give back to K-State. He did not have a ton of money, but still wanted to make K-state better than how he left it. He wants to make sure that he gives back a little of what K-State gave to him when he was here just 4 short years ago. I was able to relate to many of the experiences he encountered even though we are different majors and had different educational path while studying here at K-State.

Major: Marketing

Katie Goldstein

Graduation Year: 2020

Hometown: Augusta, KS

Favorite Memory:  

My favorite memory from a call with a donor was with an elderly gentleman who had taught high school for many years after graduating from K-State. Now in retirement, he shared with me many stories from his career and wanted to give me all the teaching and life tips he could! He was also a faithful donor to K-State and over flowed with purple pride! It was an amazing feeling to feel so supported by an alumnus I have never even met!

Major: Secondary Education - Social Studies
