KU honors area scholars

Students from nine Kansas high schools were honored Oct. 5, by the University of Kansas Alumni Association and KU Endowment.

Seventy-three seniors from high schools in Finney, Greeley, Hamilton, Kearny, Lane, Scott and Wichita counties were recognized for their academic achievements and named Kansas Honor Scholars at a dinner and program at Garden City High School.

Among the honored students were:

Dighton: Sara Cramer  

Scott City: Krystal Appel, Karen Gonzalez, Taylor Goodman, Bo Hess, Katie Nowak, Clarissa Ratzlaff, Kylee Trout, Paige Winderlin and Kiana Yager.

Leoti: Morgan Budde, Abbey Fischer and Abigail Ridder.

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.

Community volunteers collect reservations, coordinate details and serve as local contacts for the event. Kristi Schmitt, of Scott City, is the coordinator for Scott, Lane and Wichita counties.


The Kansas Honors Program is made possible by KU Endowment and proceeds from the Jayhawk license plate program.
