2020 Award Recipients – KASFAA Rising Star Award

KASFAA Rising Star award provides recognition to an individual member with fewer than 5 years of experience who shows promise for future contributions to the association or the financial aid profession. This individual has demonstrated quality performance through their passion for their work while exemplifying the professionalism and dedication to the mission of KASFAA.


Awarded to Jillian Palan, Johnson County Community College, for her involvement as an attendee at Summer Institute 2019 (Slytherin Green hiss chant leader), work on the Professional Development Training committee, and entertainment planning for Summer Institute 2020 (sad that the entertainment will forever remain a secret now). “Jillian is truly a KASFAA Rising Star and is not afraid to seize an opportunity to be involved.”
