The Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club announced the winners of its annual Student Scholarship Contest at the Club’s May 21st luncheon meeting.
 
The Club awarded $1,000 college scholarships to each of three area high school seniors: Megan Dorantes from Sumner Academy, MacKensi Freese from Bonner Springs High School, and Amiel Green II from Washington High School.  The Club awards these scholarships to the top female and male students who participate in the Club’s scholarship speech contest.  Due to a tie for the female students, the club opted to award both top place females this year.  These students competed with other outstanding high school students from Wyandotte County schools.  All the students exemplify the highest academic, service and character standards in our community.  We can all be proud of what Wyandotte County has helped produce in these students.  The Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club congratulates them and wishes them the best in their pursuit of higher education.
