KU to honor 254 seniors from Sedgwick county high schools

Wed, 09/16/2015

LAWRENCE - Students from 12 Kansas high schools will be honored Monday, Sept. 28, by the University of Kansas Alumni Association and KU Endowment.

A total of 254 seniors from high schools in Sedgwick County will be recognized for their academic achievements and named Kansas Honor Scholars at a 7:00 p.m. program and reception at Eisenhower High School, 1230 South 167th St W, Goddard.

Since 1971, the Kansas Honors Program has recognized over 125,000 scholars, who rank in the top 10 percent of their high school senior classes and are selected regardless of occupational plans or higher-education goals. Each year, the KU Alumni Association and its volunteers host 36 programs that reach all 105 counties across the state and include approximately 360 high schools.

During the ceremony, each student will receive a Webster’s New College Dictionary and a commemorative certificate.

Steven Warren, professor of speech-language-hearing research & disorders at the University of Kansas, will speak to the students and their parents and guests.

Community volunteers collect contributions, coordinate details and serve as local contacts for the event. Blair and Mark Rogers, of Wichita, are the site coordinators. Peggy and John Knudtson, of Wichita, are the Sedgwick County coordinators.

The Kansas Honors Program is made possible by KU Endowment and proceeds from the Jayhawk license plate program. The Class of 2016 scholars:
