This year just continues to get better and better, and from big-time individual performances to an exciting announcement about the future of K-State Athletics; April was an exciting month for to be a Wildcat. 

Letter from A.D. John Currie - April 30

Good Afternoon Wildcat Nation,

Following a busy and exciting spring game weekend we've been back in the office and hard at it this week, starting Monday morning with various meetings and our annual Career Cats luncheon for our junior and senior student-athletes. We'll touch on all of the activities shortly, but first I would like to thank our entire staff and all of Wildcat Nation for their support in making all of the spring game weekend events a huge success.

Special Honorary Coaches Assist with VFC Announcement
It was great to see all of our Golden Cat and Ring of Honor members who were back in town for Saturday's spring football game, and I would like to especially thank former Wildcat greats Terence Newman and Darren Sproles for making the trip "home" for the weekend as special honorary coaches. Our 600-plus Ahearn Fund members in attendance at Friday's Powercat Auction especially enjoyed visiting with some of their favorite Wildcats, including NFL alumni Nick Leckey, Ryan Lilja and Jon McGraw.

It was a tremendous honor for me to be on the field pre-game with Darren, Terence and President Schulz to announce to the 17,000-plus fans in attendance plans for Phase III of the Bill Snyder Family Stadium Master Plan - the Vanier Football Complex and North Stadium Project. Among my most enjoyable moments so far at K-State have been when student-athletes and fans react to new announcements and see new plans and videos - much like at the Cotton Bowl pep rally when we announced plans for the West Stadium Center - and in this case on Saturday the unveiling of our next critical athletics facility project. Click here to see our full announcement, watch the unveiling video and our full master plan website.

While more than half of the $65 million in necessary funding has already been secured, it is imperative that Wildcat fans continue to contribute, at any level, and be a part of the Vanier Football Challenge campaign to help K-State remain a national leader in college athletics. The funding plan currently calls for $50 million to be privately funded through philanthropic giving with the remaining $15 million coming from other department revenues. No tax or tuition dollars will be used! Thank you for your continued support!
