Kansas Honor Scholars Program
The 2009 Kansas Honor Scholars Banquet and Recognition program will be held on Wednesday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park, Kansas.
The purposes of the Kansas Honor Scholars program are:
To promote academic excellence in secondary education
To reward high school Seniors for their hard work and dedication
To support Kansas Communities
The Kansas Honors Program recognizes and awards high school Seniors for their academic achievements. Each fall, the University of Kansas Alumni Association conducts more than 40 award ceremonies at locations across the state. All high school seniors who rank academically in the top 10 percent of their class are asked to attend as guests of the Assocation, along with their parents, principal and Superintendent.
Each Kansas Honor Scholar receives a certificate and a special edition of The American Heritage Dictionary. Kansas Honor 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 educational goals. Before each program, a list of Kansas Honor Scholars is released to area newspapers.
