(Press Release)

Kevin Donnelly, Ph.D., was honored for his support of the National Sorghum Foundation scholarship program in October following a Center for Sorghum Improvement Seminar at Kansas State University.

“Dr. Donnelly has been a great supporter of the National Sorghum Foundation’s scholarship effort by helping promote these scholarships to K-State students as well as providing countless letters of support for scholarship applicants,” said Larry Lambright, National Sorghum Foundation chairman.

Donnelly served as the assistant dean of the College of Agriculture at K-State for 10 years before returning to the classroom as a professor of crop science. Along with teaching and advising, Donnelly has played a large role as co-advisor for the Wheat State Agronomy Club and coach of the K-State Crops Teams. The guidance he provides to students as they navigate the academic process, as well as his mentorship in preparing them for the world beyond college, has been valuable to the university.

Kansas State has had a consistently high number of National Sorghum Foundation scholarship applicants over the last several years, largely due to Donnelly’s encouragement and effort. Applicants from K-State have been successful, many of them receiving NSF scholarships.

“The work that Donnelly has done with these young people has benefitted them, as well as K-State and the state of Kansas,” Lambright said, “as these students will become the producers, researchers, agronomists, instructors and agricultural leaders of tomorrow.”

Donnelly was awarded a letter of recognition at the ceremony as well as a $5,000 unrestricted honorarium for his support and efforts. To learn more about the National Sorghum Foundation, visit sorghumgrowers.com.
