TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Two Northeast Kansas high school grads earned $2,500 scholarships Tuesday thanks to WIBW Scholar-Athlete of the Week sponsors Kaw Valley Bank and Cable Dahmer of Topeka.

The scholarships were presented at an end-of-year celebration for the 31 young men and women selected as Scholar-Athletes of the Week this school year. Twenty-five high schools were represented.

Hayden’s Trent Duffey and Shawnee Heights’ Taryn Dial were named winners in the scholarship drawing.
