A Glimse Into the KAMS “Vanguards”
and where they are looking at attending this next year. We have 26 students in
the “Vanguard” class who will be completing the Academy in May.
At this point we have students
looking at going to eleven different schools to continue their education. Many
have received large scholarship offers and been accepted into outstanding
programs. We are extremely proud of these students and their accomplishments.
These students will make a huge positive impact on the future of the state and
the country. Five “Vanguard” students will remain
at Fort Hays State University (FHSU). There are six of the students who will
further their education at the University of Kansas (KU). Three students will be
moving on to Kansas State University (KSU). We will also see our third KAMS
student move on to Wichita State University (WSU).
One of our current students as
well as one of our former students has been accepted into the University of
Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC) School of Medicine in the UMKC B.A./M.D.
program. Another one of our students plans to attend Stevens Institute of
Technology in New Jersey. We have students attending Boston University, Saint
Louis University, Rochester University, Rochester Institute of Technology,
Virginia Tech, William Jewel College, New York University, and the University
of Colorado at Bouler. We believe that more prestigious schools will soon be
added to the list. Wow!
As always we would love to have
you come visit with our students and see the Academy in action. We can be
