Kansas Honor Scholars, Chris Goddard, Shailan Phillips, and Jenna Frisbie were honored in a ceremony on November 13th at Pittsburg High School. This program recognizes the students who academically rank in the top 10% of their graduating classes. The ceremony included a speaker, recognition of the scholars, and a reception for scholars, families, school administrators and alumni. Scholars also received a distinctive Kansas Honor Scholars medallion. Each student was also offered a Kansas Honor Scholar Scholarship to the University of Kansas. Abigail Gudde was also awarded the honor but was not able to attend the ceremony.
This program is designed to promote academic excellence in secondary education, to reward high school seniors for their hard work and dedication, and to support Kansas communities. It is made possible by KU Endowment, alumni donations and proceeds from the Alumni Association’s Jayhawk license plate program.
Congratulations to these students for this honor!
