2013 Scholarship Recipients
My name is Camille Adams. My father has worked as a custodian at his school in Maize, Kansas where 8 of the 9 years he's been the head custodian. This gave me the opportunity to apply for this scholarship and also to attend school at Maize High School. Throughout high school, I've taken a challenging curriculum with many honors and college classes. I've been involved with band and National Honors Society and am graduating as a Kansas Honor Scholar. I'm enrolled to attend Kansas State University to pursue becoming a veterinarian through an animal sciences and industry major. My family and I are very greatful for KADPF choosing me as a recipient for this scholarship. It will help me pursue my dreams and I'll use it to make the best of every opportunity.
My name is Madison Weingartner. I have been attending the Goddard School District since third grade. I graduated May 21, 2013 in the top ten percent of my class. While attending, I have done many activities such as; KAY, NHS, Spirit Club, Spanish Club, Science Club, Circle of Friends, Soccer for four years and cross country for two years. After high school, I will be attending Wichita State University majoring in Chemistry/Pre-Med in hopes of becoming a dentist. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, watching hockey and going bowling. I would like to thank the scholarship committee for choosing me as a recipient of the Kansas Association of Directors of Plant Facilities Scholarship.
My name is Tyler J. O'Briant. I am a recent honors graduate of Tonganoxie High School where I was highly involved in Theatre, Forensics and several mentoring programs. I was a member of the National Honor Society, a Kansas State Scholar, Kansas Scholars Curriculum Completer, THS nominee for the Prudential Spirit of Community competition and received the Certificate of Achievement for Outstanding Community Service. Most of my spare time was spent volunteering at Children's Mercy Hospital where I served as Teen Advisory Board president and helped facilitate many new programs that benefit patients of all ages. This fall I'll be attending Kansas State University majoring in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Leadership Studies. I've been accepted into the Honors program, selected as a Premier scholarship finalist for the Nancy Landon Kassebaum competition and was selected to receive the K-State Civic Leadership scholarship for my book drive program at Children's Mercy Hospital. I'm looking forward to this next chapter and the opportunity to continue my aim for excellence and to making a difference in the community. My father is Thomas O'Briant, Head Custodian at Glenwood Ridge Elementary in the Basehor-Linwood school district, and being selected as a recipient for the K.A.D.P.F scholarship will help me achieve those goals and I greatly appreciate the impact it will make toward it. Thank you!
My name is Danelle Hoard. I graduated from Sylvan-Lucas Unified Junior/Senior High School in Sylvan Grove, Kansas. My father has been the custodian and head of building maintenance for the school district for around nine years. I plan to attend North Central Kansas Technical College and major in Business Management. I will achieve my Associate’s Degree and then I will return home to Sylvan Grove to run the family business. My family loves our community, and in a time when many small towns are fading away, it is my desire to come back to my hometown to help encourage growth. I truly appreciate the KADPF for this scholarship and the opportunity it is providing for me.
