CU Scholarship Awarded to Simons, VanHoutan

The Kansas Blue Cross Blue Shield Credit Union is sending high school seniors, Kyle Simons and Bridget VanHoutan, to college with $1,000 scholarships.

Kyle, son of Brenda and William Simons, is completing his senior year at Hayden High School, where he has participated in Hayden Singers, soccer, swimming, golf and National Honor Society. He will attend Kansas State University this fall to study computer science. Kyle volunteers through church and school, as well as with Top Soccer, Harvesters and Corita's Corner Sandwich Ministry. 

Bridget VanHoutan, daughter of Mary and Andy VanHoutan, will graduate from Oskaloosa High School where she is active in volleyball, cheer, dance, FBLA, SADD and Circle of Friends. Bridget volunteers with Salvation Army, Ronald McDonald House, Step Up for Downs, as well as through her church and as an elementary school tutor. She plans to study biology at Emporia State University in the fall; and would ultimately like to apply for the physician assistant program at Wichita State University. 

The scholarship money will help Kyle and Bridget with tuition, books, fees, or room and board. An independent committee of the Kansas Blue Cross Blue Shield Credit Union Board of Directors made the scholarship selections. Academic achievement, community involvement, and recommendation letters from a teacher, counselor, or coach were considered during the selection process.

Congratulations Kyle, Bridget, and their families!
