Phillipsburg High School seniors earn Kansas Honor Scholar Recognition
The Kansas Honor Scholars Program released this year’s honor scholars. Phillipsburg High School had five seniors receive the prestigious award: Kagan Keeten, Collette Kennedy, Ethan Leidig, Kay Pakkebier and Ty Sides.
Since 1971, the KU Alumni Association has sponsored the Kansas Honor Scholars Program, which honors the top 10% of the senior class.
Recipients are generally honored with a banquet, medallion and a certificate of achievement. However, in this pandemic year, the banquet was changed to a virtual recognition where honorees will be recognized on the kualumni.org/khs website along with a video message from University of Kansas Chancellor Doug Girod.
Recipients will also have a commemorative program available to them in May that will list the names of all Kansas Honor Scholars and photos that were submitted by schools and individuals.
