ACHS Senior Receives Prestigious Wallace Scholarship

Andover Central High School senior Alex King has been named a 2018 Wallace Scholar. King is one of twelve incoming freshmen to receive $28,000 to attend Wichita State University for four years.

Wallace Scholars are a community of more than 40 engineering students from every class and nearly every major in the College of Engineering. Wallace Scholars are involved on the WSU campus and within the Wichita community to promote engineering, math, science and community service.

Selection for the Wallace Scholarship is based on recipients’ high school GPA, ACT score and performance at the annual Wallace Invitational for Scholarships in Engineering (WISE), which was held in November and attracted 205 students from 13 states, making it the largest WISE competition to date.
