Area students win scholarships toward STEM careers

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Four local graduating seniors have received $1,500 scholarships through the Discovery Scholarship program sponsored by the Flint Hills Resources Arthur ethanol plant.

The Discovery Scholarship recognizes outstanding achievement both inside and outside the classroom. Scholarship winners are selected based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership, entrepreneurial skills and their intent to pursue careers in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – or agriculture.

The scholarship can be used at the college, university, or trade school of the recipient’s choice. Flint Hills Resources Arthur congratulates this year’s scholarship winners: 

• Camber Herrig, East Sac High School

• Jacob Kliegl, Ridgeview High School

• Cameron O’Connell, Maple Valley-Anthon-Oto High School

• Ellie Diersen, OA-BCIG High School
