The Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club, as part of its annual Student Scholarship Contest, recognized outstanding high school students from Wyandotte county schools.  One female and one male student from each school are nominated by their respective schools to compete for $1,000 college scholarships.  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, and we are excited about their bright futures.
The male students, accompanied by family and school representatives, made short presentations before the Club on April 10th at its weekly luncheon.  The female students presented to the Club on April 17th.
The Club will choose one female and one male from these outstanding high school students to receive a $1,000.00 scholarship to be used at the college or university of their choice.  The scholarships will be awarded at the Club's luncheon on May 1st.
