Wallace Kidd Award
The purpose of this biennial award is to recognize outstanding diversity accomplishments of faculty, staff and students at Kansas State University. Recipients have demonstrated a commitment to diversity on the University campus or in the community through mentoring, outreach initiatives and other activities which advance the institution’s goal of inclusion. This award was established in memory of Wallace Ray Kidd. Kidd was a family man and community leader. He set an example for everyone, students, adults, faculty, community, black and white. This Award is truly a fitting commemoration of his legacy and commitment.
