Two local graduating seniors have received $1,500 scholarships through the Discovery Scholarship program sponsored Flint Hills Resources, the company that operates the Duonix Beatrice biodiesel plant.
The Discovery Scholarship recognizes outstanding achievement both inside and outside the classroom. Scholarship winners are selected based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership, entrepreneurial skills and their intent to pursue careers in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – or agriculture.
The $1,500 scholarship can be used at the college, university, or trade school of the recipient’s choice. The Duonix Beatrice plant congratulates this year’s scholarship winners:
John Spilker, Beatrice High School
Evan Larson, Tri-County High School
