A longtime resident of Kansas, Karl Kandt is involved with several organizations throughout the state. Currently, Karl Eric Kandt serves as a member of Solar Kiwanis in Manhattan, Kansas, and also serves as the chair and a board member of the Manhattan High School Alumni Association.
Designed to recognize alumni who have achieved success beyond their time at Manhattan High School (MHS), the MHS Wall of Fame honors four individuals each year. The minimum requirements to become a Wall of Fame inductee include distinguished service and accomplishment in any field after graduation, and recognition of this service or accomplishment at the state or national level. Once selected by the Wall of Fame committee, inductees are honored on a plaque that is permanently displayed on the walls of MHS, and they are publicly recognized at an MHS event.
Representing nearly 100 members in 33 states, the MHS Alumni Association maintains its commitment to serve as a conduit between MHS and its alumni by coordinating and informing them of special events. Beyond the Wall of Fame, the MHS Alumni Association has refurbished a mosaic in the school gymnasium and established the school’s Alumni Center & Museum.
