Two Wichita high school students are winners of the 2014-2015 Professor Fran Jabara Scholarship in Entrepreneurship at Wichita State University.
Jordan Newby and Levi Iseman, both seniors at Bishop Carroll High School, are the recipients.
The scholarship is one of the most prestigious at WSU and one of the largest entrepreneurship scholarships nationally. It awards each recipient $20,000 over four years.
To compete, a student must have a minimum ACT score of 24, a GPA of 3.5 or better and be a declared entrepreneurship major.
The Jabara Scholarship was established in 1998 and is named for Fran Jabara, former dean of the College of Business Administration at WSU. Along with the financial benefits, winners also are mentored by Jabara during their stay at the university.
Newby, a member of the National Honor Society, wants to pursue a degree in entrepreneurship and eventually own her own bakery and grill.
She is a member of the Bishop Carroll dance team and swim team, is a recipient of the Golden Eagle Academic Achievement Award, and spends her spare time volunteering at the Lord's Diner.
Iseman, also a member of the National Honor Society, plans to pursue entrepreneurship. He has already started his own business – a lawn care company – and wants to create new businesses someday in his community.
Secretary of Bishop Carroll's student council, Iseman is also group leader of the Leadership Workshop Team and in 2011 won a National Leadership Award. He is senior captain of the varsity golf team and is a volunteer with the Lord's Diner and Center of Hope.
