Personal Information

Carrie Leonhart Fratecelli attended K-State and Manhattan Christian College for her undergraduate work. She stayed in Manhattan for her graduate program because she appreciated the personal attention that students can receive from the faculty-experts in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program as well as the person-focus of the College of Human Ecology as a whole.
