Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz is being honored with an award from the National Eagle Scout Association.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Schulz will receive the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award at a luncheon Saturday in Manhattan.
The award recognizes individuals who, after receiving their Eagle Award at least 25 years ago, have distinguished themselves in their career and have volunteered in their communities.
Schulz is president of the Coronado Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America and has served on the council's board since 2009. Both of his sons have also earned the rank of Eagle Scout.
