Solomon High School (Solomon, Kan.) senior Eddie Sandoval was recently named the Linwood Sexton Scholarship recipient at Wichita State University for the 2013-2014 academic year.
The four-year scholarship provides full tuition, books, fees and on-campus housing, and has opened the door for Sandoval to get a college education.
Sandoval is described by his high school band director as the "definition of a positive attitude with his abilities to encourage others on a daily basis."
A student leader
Sandoval also served as class student vice president for the past three years.
He is known throughout his community as a hard worker, often stopping to help neighbors with mowing and snow removal.
"I take pride in my work and make sure I do the best in everything I do," Sandoval said.
Sandoval looks forward to attending Wichita State in the fall and plans to major in Business Finance.
An untiring advocate for equal opportunity and social justice, he has been honored with many awards for his efforts in promoting understanding and respect among people of different racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds.
Incoming freshman applicants must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average and demonstrate financial need. All students are eligible to apply, but preference is given to minority students.
The scholarship is automatically renewed as long as the student maintains satisfactory academic progress.
