Wichita State awards education scholarships to five high schoolers


Five high school seniors were named Doris and Ralph Klose Scholars as part of the Klose Scholars Day at Wichita State University.

The Klose Scholarship is awarded to students pursuing a degree in math or science education in Wichita State’s College of Applied Studies. Students receive a tuition, fees and book stipend scholarship, estimated at $19,000, once they are admitted into the Teacher Education program at the beginning of their junior year at WSU.

This year’s recipients of the Doris and Ralph Klose Scholarship are:

Allison Flores
Timbre Creek High School
Fort Worth, Texas

Nathan Gosvenor
Little Elm High School
Little Elm, Texas

Rebekah Iseman
Bishop Carroll Catholic High School

Keely Orr
Southeast Saline Senior High School
Assaria, Kansas

Marlon Toney
Wichita East High School

Eight high school seniors from Kansas and Texas competed for the Klose Scholarship. Klose Scholars Day provided students with the opportunity to interview with College of Applied Studies faculty and current Klose Scholars, present a mini-lesson and participate in a group activity. Students also submitted an application that included two essays.
