K-State and Fort Riley celebrate 10 years of partnership
Kansas State University and Fort Riley are celebrating ten years of partnership.
The military-to-university partnership focuses on mutual support for each other and the community.
"This is about strengthening our community, making it the best community it can be for all the people that live here,” said K-State University president Richard Myers.
Myers and Maj. Gen. John Kolasheski signed the resolution at a ceremony on campus Wednesday evening.
K-State’s goal is to make the university one of the most military friendly in the country. Fort Riley aims to teach the community about America’s Army and support university research.
“Those in Manhattan and those in Fort Riley, military members, students faculty, staff, families in particular. Anyway we can make this community stronger, we both believe is in our best interest," Myers continued.
This plan is the first and only partnership of its kind in the country.
