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 $1000 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 want they can bring in the future.
The male students, accompanied by family and school representatives, made short presentations before the club on April 12th at its weekly luncheon.  The female students on April 19th.
The Club will choose one female and one male from these outstanding high school students to receive a $1000.00 scholarship at the college or university of their choice.  The scholarships will be awarded at the Club's luncheon on May 3rd.
