KSU nontraditional students honored
Three area students were recently inducted into Kansas State University's chapter of Pinnacle, a national honor society for nontraditional students.
Amber M. Garrett, Lansing, a senior in marketing; Adam Goetz, Leavenworth, a senior in electrical engineering; and Christina Marie Bowser, Leavenworth, a senior in social science, were among the students named to the chapter.
"Distance students have a difficult time getting recognized for their hard work. This program presents the opportunity for nontraditional students to receive the recognition they deserve no matter where they live," said Daniel Butcher, program coordinator in the division of continuing education at K-State.
The students were honored at a virtual reception available online.
Pinnacle is a national honor society for nontraditional students who meet the qualifications of being an adult/nontraditional student at a junior standing or above with at least a 3.0 grade-point average.
