Keller, Villareal earn scholarships
Keri Keller and Victoria Villareal, seniors at Lansing High School, have been designated Foundation Scholars by the board of directors of the Highland Community College Foundation.
The two are expected to enroll in the college in fall 2005.
As Foundation Scholars, they will receive their tuition, fees, books and on-campus housing while students at the college. The program began with a bequest from the estate of Hilda Triplett, who was a member of the HCC Board of Trustees.
Selection as a Foundation Scholar is based on an application process that documents the applicant's academic record and involvement in a variety of school and community activities. Up to 10 Kansas high school graduates are designated as Foundation Scholars each year. They are asked to continue their record of academic achievement and involvement on campus.
Keller is the daughter of Rebecca and Eric Johnson of Lansing. Villareal is the daughter of Roy and Martha Villareal of rural Leavenworth. Both will be members of the Scottie cheerleading squad. Keller plans to major in criminal justice. Villareal will be an art major.
