Congratulations Dinaya & Arman, KCPS Scholar Superstars!
KCPS is excited to announce this quarter's Scholar Superstars! Dinaya Maltbia and Arman Shinwari were recognized at the Sept. 14, 2022, KCPS Board of Directors "On the Road" meeting at Southeast High School. Congratulations, Dinaya and Arman!
Dinaya Maltbia is a senior at Lincoln College Prep and a returning student in Manual Tech’s Culinary Arts program this year. She is a rising entrepreneur with her own bakery business, and we are recognizing her for her assistance and support with Dr. Bedell’s Farewell Barbecue over the summer. Dinaya helped prepare 200 meals for the KCPS community. We look forward to watching her continue in her culinary journey as she grows her bakery business!
Arman Shinwari is a second grader at Whittier and a part of our Global Academy programming. Arman and his family came to the United States as Afghan refugees. They spent four months traveling before settling in Kansas City, where Arman ultimately found an academic home in KCPS. Arman did not speak any English when he arrived, but he now knows so much he helps our other Afghan students with their language skills. He is an amazing student and a Scholar Superstar!
