Hope Street Student Receives Scholarship
Congratulations to Hope Street Academy junior Kelly Nemechek-- she has received a scholarship to attend the Youth Civic Leadership Institute this summer. It will be held at the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics on the campus of the University of Kansas. Only about 60 incoming seniors from across the state were selected to attend this program, which is designed to enhance leadership skills and encourage public service.
Kelly is very excited about the workshop. “I’ve never done anything like this before,” she said. We think she’s going to have a wonderful time! Congrats, Kelly!
