PHS Gore Scholars

Public Health Sciences home to two Gore Scholars

The Department of Public Health Sciences (PHS) welcomed Gore Scholar and Health Sciences student Brynna Mays (pictured left) from Topeka West High School. Brynna joined fellow PHS student and Gore Scholar Sarah Buie (pictured right) in the department, making it the first time there have been two Gore scholars at the same time in the College of Health Professions.  

The Harry Gore Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to freshmen entering WSU who display outstanding potential for leadership. Each year, through the Distinguished Scholarship Invitational scholarship competition, three students are awarded $64,000 to attend Wichita State University. It has become one of the most prestigious and coveted awards in the U.S. and encourages personal growth and involvement in leadership positions. 

Sarah graduated in fall 2022 with a BS in Health Science and Psychology and a BS in Health Management. Brynna and Sarah are both thankful for the life-changing scholarship and say it was a huge benefit to their education.
