During the month of April, the Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club, as part of its annual Student Scholarship Competition, recognized outstanding high school students from Wyandotte County schools. One female and one male student from each school are nominated by their respective school’s staffs to compete for $1,500 college scholarships.  All the students exemplify the highest academic, service and character standards in our community.  We can all be proud of these Wyandotte County students, and we are excited about their bright futures.
Due to the pandemic, the KCK Rotary Club continues to meet via Zoom.  The female students, accompanied by school representatives, made short presentations at the Club’s Zoom meeting on April 13th, and the male students presented to the Club on April 20th.
The Club will choose one female and one male from these outstanding high school students to receive a $1,500.00 scholarship to be used at the college or university of the student’s choice.  The scholarship announcements will be made in early May.
