Local students win Hansen scholarships

Eleven Concordia High School students and four Clifton-Clyde High School students were among the 260 high school seniors from 59 Northwest Kansas schools who received Dane G. Hansen scholarships this year.
Siri McGuire, Concordia, was one of 10 Leader of Tomorrow scholarships. These awards are for $6,500 and may be renewable for three additional years based upon continued regard for the principles which guided the success of the late Dane G. Hansen, a 3.00 or better GPA at the college level and a letter describing progress toward educational goals.
Three students from CHS—Gabe Bergmann, Logan Whitney and Marie Brewer—were Hansen Scholar winners. The stipend of $4,000 was granted for one year and may be renewed for one additional year under the same general conditions as set forth in the Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship. Fifty students were selected for this award.
Three students from Clifton-Clyde School—Damian Cyr, Dalton Porter and Mariah Kieffer—and four students from Concorida—Alyssa Champlin, Micah Fabarez, Daniel Longfellow and Heather Letourneau—were named Hansen Student winners. One hundred students received this award which is for $3,000 and may be renewed for one additional year provided the student has maintained a satisfactory academic record.
Zachary DeMars, Cloud Co. Community College student from Miltonvale was awarded $3,000 for a transfer scholarship to a 4-year Kansas college or university. This award may be renewed for one year upon completion of satisfactory work as evaluated by the Scholarship Committee.  Twelve community or technical college transfer scholarships were awarded this year.
Ryan Barnes of Clifton-Clyde and Ashley Adams, Joshua Pounds and Rachel Blochlinger of Concordia received scholarships for students interested in a Career and Technical Education scholarship. They were among 100 students who were offered awards of $2,000 each.
In selecting award winners, the Scholarship Committee considered proficiency in verbal and writing skills. Other important factors are academic records, test scores and community service in which the student may have participated.
