Wabash CannonBall North Texas 2019

If you’re looking for purple pride, you won’t have any difficulty finding it at a Wabash CannonBall gala.

The K-State Alumni Association hosted the Wabash CannonBall North Texas on June 7 at the Dallas Marriott Las Colinas, filling the ballroom with many elegant purple decorations. And of course, all the guests arrived wearing their finest purple attire.

The Association’s Wabash CannonBall events are black-tie galas that bring K-Staters together for an evening of dining, dancing and raising scholarship funds for area students to attend K-State. So far, the North Texas event has raised $220,000.

"Receiving this tremendous honor will allow me to mainly focus on my studies, rather than the financial aspect," said Faith McDonald, a pre-vet animal science major and 2019 scholarship winner. "This scholarship not only aids in the success of my future plans at K-State, but it also provides motivation and encourages me to do my best. Thank you!"
