Letter from A.D. John Currie - July 2

Good Morning K-State Fans!
 
The month of July is upon us, which always means two things: the July 4 holiday filled with food and fun with friends and family, and it also marks the beginning of another fiscal year here at K-State Athletics, Inc.

In my last letter, I shared that for FY14 we will have a balanced budget and achieve a surplus for the fifth straight year. I appreciate our coaches and staff for continuing to make budget-conscious decisions each and every day as well as all of Wildcat Nation for filling our stadiums all year long and participating in the Ahearn Fund.

In keeping with our commitment to transparency, today it is our pleasure to share with you our projected fiscal year 2015 budgeted revenues and expenses, and if you click here you can see both sides of our annual "budget card" - which of course I'll be carrying in my pocket at all times!
