Katie Dreiling Miss K-State 2021
Katie won the competition as a junior representing Alpha Omega Epsilon. Her confidence and poise set her apart the whole night, and she is most remembered for her nerd-themed baton twirling routine in the talent round. Katie was the third recipient of the Miss K-State scholarship and put the funds toward finishing her undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering. Though her commitment to marching band as a twirler and Covid-19 restrictions impacted her ability to make appearances as Miss K-State, she loved emceeing the 2022 competition. Katie is from Bennington, KS, and upon graduation in May 2022, she will move to Overland Park, KS and work for Black and Veatch as a mechanical engineer in their power division.
