South science teacher receives Mohling Foundation scholarship

Jessica Simmons Mohling Scholarship recipient Jessica Simmons, biology teacher at South High School, was awarded with the 2018 Wendell G. Mohling Foundation Scholarship Award. Representatives from the foundation presented Simmons with the $500 scholarship on November 29 during South’s pep assembly. The scholarship is given annually to a Kansas science teacher to be used to enhance their professional development. Simmons will use the award to attend the National Science Teachers Association Conference in St. Louis.  The award also pays for her membership for one year to the Kansas Association of Teachers of Science. 

The scholarship foundation was created by Carol Mohling in honor of her husband, Wendell G. Mohling.  Dr. Mohling was a former Kansas Association of Teachers of Science President and NSTA President.
