The purpose of the Kansas Honors Program is to assist Kansas University
alumni in providing local recognition to Kansas high school
seniors for their outstanding academic achievements.
The Kansas Alumni Association asks high school principals across the
state to provide names of all graduating seniors who rank
academically in the top 10 percent of their classes. Selections are based on academic records through the previous semester, regardless of
curricula, majors, occupational plans or higher-education goals.
The Alumni Association invites students and their parents, principals
and superintendents to attend the Kansas Honors Program organized
by area alumni. At each program, students and school representatives are invited as guests of alumni. Principals present their Kansas Honor
Scholars, who receive certificates and special editions of The American Heritage Dictionary.
