Kansas State University has named Lenexa native Sahiba Grover, one of its graduating seniors, as a recipient of the Dean of Student Life Outstanding Graduating Senior Award.

Grover, who completed her degree in microbiology, is one of 13 seniors to be honored this spring. She found out the news Thursday while she was at home, since the university is closed to in-person learning.

“I was really shocked, honestly; I wasn’t really expecting it,” she said. “It was kind of surreal. It’s a little difficult being at home, with all this corona stuff. It didn’t really feel real at the moment. I’ve been at home doing school remotely, so it definitely took me 20 or 30 minutes before I was like whoa, I actually got this award and this is kind of amazing.”
