This is the image for the news article titled Kansas Honors Program 2016-17On Wednesday evening, September 28, BRENT MALMSTROM and KAYLEY GEESLING were honored at a banquet sponsored by the University of Kansas for being the top 10% of their class.

The Kansas Honors Program recognizes and awards high school seniors for their academic achievements. Each year KU alumni gather in more than 37 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, counselors 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 special edition of Webster’s New College Dictionary, and has a chance to qualify for a $4,000 scholarship to KU. Scholars are selected based on academic records through the previous semester that are provided by high school principals. Selections are made regardless of curricula (weighted or non-weighted), majors, occupational plans or higher-education goals. 

Congrats to Brent and Kayley.  Falcon Proud!
