A record number of Iola High School seniors — 23 — completed a more intensive course of studies, earning the distinction of Kansas Scholars. The curriculum requires students to take more science, math and foreign language classes than required for graduation.

That honor was among the many achievements bestowed on members of the IHS Class of 2018 during Wednesday’s annual Scholarship Night.

“There are people who say that education in America is lacking but I submit to you tonight that when you see these accomplishments that is simply not true,” IHS principal Scott Crenshaw said. “Education — quality education — is alive and well at Iola High School. We recognize students who’ve achieved great things and earned great scholarships so they can continue their education.”
