Twelve KCPS Grads Granted $6,000 Superintendent's Scholarships

KCPS is proud to announce that 12 graduates from the Class of 2022 received Superintendent’s Scholarships this year.

Dr. Mark Bedell established the Superintendent’s Scholarship to help graduating seniors who have faced extremely adverse conditions. This scholarship can be used at traditional colleges and universities as well as trade schools. Students receive $1,000 directly and $5,000 to the school of their choice.

Dr. Bedell wanted to establish the scholarship fund because of his own experiences as a homeless student.

“Every Kansas City child will come to school every day with hope,” Dr. Bedell said. “They will come to school knowing that they have a real shot at building a great future. They will have all the resources, programs, and activities they need and deserve to turn lessons into experiences that spark lifelong passions.”

Superintendent’s Scholarship recipients were recognized before their peers at our commencement ceremonies last month. Congratulations to these students on their tremendous accomplishment!
