Anatoly Karpov International School of Chess, Lindsborg, honored its 2008 summer chess camp scholarship recipients at a reception May 1 in Lindsborg.

Matthew Richert was awarded a scholarship for his outstanding team participation as a Hillsboro High School Chess Guild team member.

Michael Christian, based on his leadership and performance as an HHS Guild member, was the recipient of the Hillsboro Community Foundation grant.

Both students will represent HHS at the Karpov Summer Chess Camp at Lindsborg.

Along with the HCF grant, other local businesses that contributed to the Karpov summer chess camp scholarship fund were Wheatbelt, Inc., United Suppliers, and Countryside Feed, LLC.
