WPS seniors named WSU Wallace Scholars

East High senior Xander Niblack and Heights senior Cliff Hoseah are among the 10 students recently named to the Wichita State University’s College of Engineering Wallace Scholar program.

Wallace Scholarship recipients will receive $28,500 each to attend Wichita State for four years and comprise a community of more than 45 College of Engineering students, representing every class and almost every major in the college. Wallace scholars are involved in the College of Engineering, across the Wichita State campus, and in the Wichita community.

Selection for the Wallace Scholarship is based on recipients’ high school GPA, ACT scores and performance at the annual Wallace Invitational for Scholarships in Engineering (WISE), which was held in November and drew 175 students from 10 states.

The Wallace Scholarship is made possible through the Dwane and Velma Wallace Endowment.
