The Kansas County Clerks’ and Election Officials’ Association (KCCEOA) is pleased to announce that Jaden S. Adams, Wellington High School, is one of twelve recipients of a $500 scholarship.
This scholarship has been in place for several years and was started by the funds the KCCEOA received from the Associated Press and major news outlets for election night reporting.   The bulk of the funding now comes from donations and from funds received through a silent auction held annually at the spring conference of the association.   Conference participants bring items either donated or purchased for the auction and the conference attendees bid on them throughout the conference.
The scholarships are for students who major in Journalism, Political Science, Business or Communications, available to high school seniors, college freshmen or sophomores. This scholarship program has awarded hundreds of scholarships to the youth of Kansas over the years.
The scholarship winners were announced at the County Clerks’ and
Election Officials’ Association Conference, May 11.
