Sue Maes and Dennis Hemmendinger create scholarship for Global Campus students
Friday, September 22, 2017
Sue Maes, retiring dean of K-State Global Campus, and her husband, Dennis Hemmendinger, have given a gift to Global Campus to create the Sue Maes and Dennis Hemmendinger KSU Foundation Family Scholarship.
The scholarship is available to both undergraduate and graduate students admitted to a distance education degree program offered through K-State Global Campus.
Providing financial support for distance education students has been a key driver of Maes' tenure as dean of Global Campus. Through her leadership, the number of scholarships awarded to part-time, online, degree-seeking students has increased sevenfold.
"Very few scholarships exist for the adult part-time individual who wants to return to K-State via distance learning," Maes said. "My husband and I are pleased we can help change lives for years to come."
If you'd like to contribute to this scholarship fund as a way to help students and honor Dean Maes' service to K-State, please go to the online giving webpage.
A retirement reception honoring Sue Maes and her 48 years of service will be from 3-5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 25, in the K-State Alumni Center Ballroom. All K-Staters are invited to celebrate.
