Hannah Wilborn, Hoisington High School class of 2014, was selected to attend the 31st annual Governor’s Scholars Awards Program in Topeka on May 4 at the invitation of Gov. Sam Brownback.
The recognition ceremony honors the top academic one percent of Kansas high school seniors. Scholars are selected from accredited public and private schools in the state. There were 35,000 some seniors in 2014, and only 539 represent the top 1 percent.
“These high school seniors have shown dedication in their studies and a commitment to learning. They’ve earned this honor, said Gov. Brownback. “We also should recognize their families, teachers, and mentors for helping these outstanding students achieve their academic goals.”
This program is coordinated for the governor by the Confidence in Kansas Public Education Task Force and funded by private donations.
