Orth received an Anderson Senior Award, noting her “outstanding achievements” during her years in Manhattan. Students and faculty at K-State nominate seniors for the award each year.

Orth graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English literature. K-State released the following summary of Orth’s achievements:

Orth’s extensive list of honoraries includes Blue Key Senior Honorary, Silver Key Sophomore Honorary and Quest Freshman Honorary. She also was selected as a CAT community learning assistant, where she helped freshmen by organizing events and lesson plans for them. She also helped non-English-speaking freshmen in their transition to K-State. In addition to her major, Orth minored in Spanish, leadership studies and prelaw and plans to continue her academic career by studying law.

Congrats to Maureen and the Orth family!
