Larkfest to celebrate student achievement and service

The community is invited to join Hesston College in taking a day off from classes Thursday, April 20, for the annual Larkfest event which highlights student work and achievements.

David LeVan, business faculty, says, “Larkfest was created to highlight two important values of Hesston College — academic excellence and service to others. On Larkfest, the community comes together to celebrate the best of Hesston College.”

In the morning, on-campus students will participate in service projects in the Hesston community and surrounding communities, followed by an awards ceremony in celebration of student academic and extracurricular achievement at 11:15 a.m., at Hesston Mennonite Church. The afternoon includes student presentations showcasing academic work, beginning at 1 p.m., in Kropf Center, Charles Hall, Hesston Mennonite Church and Keim Center. The public is invited to attend the awards ceremony and presentations.

The presentation schedule will be posted on site the day of the event.
