Kansas Honors Program: Local students receive honors
This fall, the Kansas Honors Program, a longstanding tradition of the University of Kansas Alumni Association and KU Endowment, will honor more than 3,600 high school seniors throughout Kansas for their academic excellence and achievement.
Local students include Larke Edelman, Sonja Menold, Leah Metzger, Laurel Smith and Justin Wenger from Sabetha High School; and McKayla Henry from Wetmore High School.
Scholars and their families are invited to attend any of the 12 regional ceremonies that is most convenient in terms of date and location. Ceremonies will include speakers, recognition of the scholars, and a reception for scholars, families, school administrators and alumni. During the ceremony, students will receive distinctive Kansas Honor Scholar medallions that can be worn at their local graduations or recognition events.
In addition, the Alumni Association will mail certificates to all high schools for distribution to all 3,600 Kansas Honor Scholars. For more information and to register online, visit kualumni.org/khs.
Since 1971, the Alumni Association has honored more than 135,000 high school seniors for ranking academically in the top 10 percent of their class. The Kansas Honors Program is made possible by KU Endowment, alumni donations and proceeds from the Alumni Association’s Jayhawk license plate program.
