Three area students were awarded scholarships to Kansas State University totaling $1,500 at the South Central Kansas K-State Alumni Club alumni/student dinner April 3 in Pratt, Kansas. There are more than 1,413 K-State alumni and friends in Barber, Harper, Kingman, Kiowa and Pratt counties.
The recipients are Brooklyn Hernandez, Medicine Lodge, Kansas, and Alesha Bergner and Abigail Lloyd, Pratt.
The scholarships were awarded by the South Central Kansas Alumni Club and the K-State Alumni Association.
"We are so pleased to congratulate these outstanding students," said Amy Button Renz, president and CEO of the Alumni Association.

We greatly appreciate local alumni and friends who have helped make these awards possible through their loyal support."
The scholarships are for the 2019-20 academic year. The Alumni Association annually awards approximately $550,000 in student scholarships with funding provided by local K-State alumni and friends and Alumni Association programming.
