Mayra Ramirez and Bayle Sandy from Great Bend High School were two of 30 students statewide named as Rudd Scholars in the Class of 2020. The winners were announced Monday, March 9 with a ceremony at Wichita State University.

The press ceremony was attended by family and friends of the award recipients and was live streamed on the internet for those that couldn’t be there.

Bayle Sandy said, “Finally being able to tell family and friends really helped make it a reality. At first I was in denial about it because this scholarship has always been a dream of mine. I remember when one of the first Rudd scholarships was awarded to Aaron Clark at Great Bend. Since then I have been following the Rudd foundation and dreaming about gaining this scholarship.”
