2015-2016 KU Honor Scholar Program...
...recognizes five Bluestem seniors
On Monday, October 19th, five Bluestem High School seniors were honored by the University of Kansas Alumni Association. Amanda Becker, Shayla Benton, Michaela Korte, Taylor Williams, and Sarah Wolf were recognized as the top 10 percent of the Bluestem Class of 2015-2016.
The Kansas Honors Program recognizes and awards high-school seniors for their academic achievements. Each year KU alumni gather in more than 40 locations across the state for an awards ceremony and honorary dinner or reception. All high-school seniors who rank academically in the top 10 percent of their class are asked to attend as guests of the Association with their parents, principals and superintendents.
The Kansas Honors Program has been a KU tradition since 1971. It is designed to promote academic excellence in secondary education, to reward high school seniors for their hard work and dedication, and to support our Kansas communities.
Each Kansas Honor Scholar receives a certificate and a special edition of The American Heritage Dictionary, and has a chance to qualify for a $4,000 scholarship to KU.
