We all know how incredible Sigma Alpha sisters are but sometimes we forget that this continues after graduation! Just because we don’t see our sisters around in classes and at chapter anymore doesn’t mean they are not still living out our pillars. Danielle Hill, a K-State Sigma Alpha alumni, has taken her passion for agriculture, leadership, and service to new heights. As a 2013 contestant for Miss Kansas, Danielle has combined her platform “Cultivating Healthy Lifestyles” and the Miss America platform for Children’s Miracle Network to create Kernels for Kids.
Kernels for Kids is a charity that allows farmers to donate bushels of grain at their local elevator. Danielle sells the grain on the 15th of each month at market value and donates the proceeds to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals here in Kansas. All proceeds directly affect KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Via Christi Hospital in Wichita and St. Francis Health Center in Topeka.
Want to get involved or donate to Kernels for Kids? Visit http://www.kernels4kids.com to get information on how to get your local grain elevator involved. The website also provides a link on how to donate even if you do not have bushels of grain to give.
We are so proud of Danielle and her passion for service and agriculture. Please help support Danielle as she attempts to positively highlight the agriculture industry and support children in need.
