On June 22, I had the pleasure of meeting with donors, award recipients and their families at the Western Kansas Community Foundation Scholarship Reception. This annual event is held to honor our scholarship recipients and to thank many of our generous donors for their continued support. The reception allows the recipients the opportunity to meet and thank their donors in person, and for donors to meet those students who are benefiting from their generosity. Our recipients come from all walks of life, but have the same hopes and dreams. I am positive that each one has the drive and ambition to succeed in anything they choose to do. These students meet the purpose of our slogan,Promises Live Here. They are the key to a promising future for themselves, their communities, and as our future leaders.
WCKF has been truly blessed with donors who have created scholarship funds within the foundation which will support students for many generations to come. We take great pride in awarding scholarships to assist deserving students with their financial needs. The generosity of all our donors allows us to give back in these and many other impactful ways, which adds to the footprint of the foundation and enhances the quality of life in Southwest Kansas. Again, many thanks to our generous scholarship donors and congratulations to our scholarship recipients.
