Two Kansas high school seniors have been awarded Jabara scholarships at Wichita State University.
Joseph McNorton, Seaman High School in Topeka, and Brittan Smith, Salina Central High School, will receive $20,000 each to further their education. The award will distributed over four years.
The Jabara scholarship is one of the most prestigious at WSU, and one of the largest entrepreneurship scholarships nationally.
To compete, a student must have a minimum ACT score of 24, a GPA of 3.5 or better and be a declared entrepreneurship major.
The Jabara Scholarship was established in 1998 and is named for Fran Jabara, former dean of the College of Business Administration at WSU.
