Eight of the area’s recent high school graduates received a little boost to fund their college education on Friday night, in the form of a $1,000 scholarship.

Five Saline County high schools (Salina Central, Salina South, Sacred Heart, Southeast of Saline and Ell-Saline) Abilene High School, Smoky Valley High School, and Minneapolis High School each nominated three senior student-athletes for the honor for their school.
Scholarship winners include:
- Sacred Heart – Hannah Goetz

- Southeast of Saline – Meredith Tillberg
- Ell-Saline – Noah Hopkins
- Minneapolis – Derek Freel

All of the winners are awarded a plaque and a $1,000 scholarship to the institution they will be attending.
The KSAL / Rocking M Media Sportscasters Club is comprised of area businesses which sponsor game broadcasts and fund the scholarships.
