BLHS grad receives scholarship
Basehor native and Ottawa University sophomore Emily McAfoos was awarded the 2008-09 Jerry Campbell Class of 1971 Memorial Cross-cultural scholarship.
The scholarship was established in memory of an OU student who had planned to study abroad but died in a vehicle accident before he could carry out his plans.
McAfoos was chosen based on her application and interview. She plans to use her $1,500 stipend to participate in a class trip to Ireland.
She will be officially honored at the OU Spring Honors Convocation on April 24.
