Democrats announce winners
This marks the third year the Marion County Democrats organization has awarded scholarships to two high school seniors in the county.
All graduating seniors from the five high schools are invited to apply. Applicants write essays on two of the tenets from the platform of the Kansas Democratic Party.
The winners for 2019 are Grace Major, Hillsboro High School, who plans to attend Sterling College; and Hap Waddell, Marion High School, who plans to attend Emporia State University. Each was given a $250 scholarship.
