Three recent graduates of local schools were among the 109 Kansas State University students honored during the Aug. 30 K-State football game for receiving 2013-2014 Legacy Scholarships.
Chelsea Fleming of Louisburg and Patrick Kennedy and Hannah Ozier of Paola were awarded $1,000 scholarships through the K-State Alumni Association and were recognized during the game in Manhattan along with their fellow recipients. Legacy scholarships are awarded to incoming students who have at least one parent or grandparent who is a K-State alumnus, a news release stated.
More than $2 million has been raised for the scholarship fund since 1997 through the K-State license plate program, administered by the Alumni Association for the university. According to the release, the plates, which feature the purple Powercat logo, are found on more than 4,500 vehicles in Kansas. The program is administered in all 105 county treasurer offices.
