Wichita State University has named three high school seniors as Klose Scholars after the fourth annual Klose Scholarship Competition held Nov. 15 at WSU's Corbin Education Center. Jacy Beck from Olathe North High School, Taylor Selvey from Mulvane High School and Alexis Thuston from Chanute High School all earned the $25,000 scholarship award,  which is dispersed over four years.

Beck, Selvey and Thuston all qualified to become Klose Scholars by applying to Wichita State and declaring a math education or science education major in the College of Education. Additionally, each earned a minimum 3.5 GPA and a minimum ACT composite score of 24 in order to be considered. The Doris and Ralph Klose  Scholarship pays the top three competitors' tuition, fees and books for their junior and senior years. Other scholarships and financial aid packages will pay those costs during their freshman and sophomore years.

Doris and Ralph Klose, both alumni, left an estate of $7.5 million to the WSU Foundation to be used for math and science education scholarships in the College of Education. This is the largest known gift of its kind in the nation to fund scholarships for future teachers in science and math.
