Todd PittengerMarch 13, 2023

Multiple area students have been awarded Dane Hansen scholarships.

The Dane G. Hansen Foundation of Logan has named 229 high school seniors from 48 northwest Kansas schools as winners in its 48th annual scholarship competition.

In selecting award winners, the scholarship committee considered proficiency in verbal and writing skills. Other important factors are academic records, test scores and community service in which the student may have participated.

Seven students have won Hansen Leader of Tomorrow scholarships. These awards are for $10,000 and may be renewable for three additional years. Renewal of scholarships is based upon continued regard for the principles, which guided the success of the late Dane G.
