Biography & Education


Sarah Howe is a 2011 graduate of K-State’s College of Agriculture with a B.S. in Park Management & Conservation and secondary major in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies. After joining K-State student affairs in 2011, Sarah found her passion in teaching and advising. In 2015, she completed her M.S. in Counseling and College Student Development and received a graduate certificate in Academic Advising. Over the last four years, she served as a primary-role advisor in K-State's A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications and an instructor for K-State First. In 2019, Sarah joined K-State Agronomy as an instructor and academic coordinator.

As a military dependent, Sarah has lived in five different states and overseas in Germany until her family called Manhattan, Kansas home. The Howe family has a small homestead in Riley County where Sarah enjoys gardening, beekeeping, and helping with the goats and ducks.

In her free time, Sarah loves spending time with her husband, Nic, and their daughter, LeAnna. Most recently, Sarah enjoys taking LeAnna horseback riding, now that she is old enough. She also enjoys crafting, running, hiking, canoeing, and spending quality time with close friends.

In addition to teaching and advising, Sarah is a co-advisor for the Wheat State Agronomy Club and Agronomy Ambassadors. She also serves as the Chair/Past-Chair (through 2020) of the Kansas Academic Advising Network.

“I’m passionate about empowering students to feel confident in their college career, especially their academic coursework, co-curricular involvement, and confidence in their post-graduation plans,” Howe said.
