Congratulations to Ben Brake, Class of 2020, on receiving the Timothy P. O'Shaughnessy Foundation's Lifelong Learning Scholarship!
The Foundation and scholarship were created in memory of Timothy O’Shaughnessy, a Wichita native and member of the WCS Class of 2002, whose passion for life and learning took him to universities in China to become fluent in Mandarin, to remote South America to work at a start-up oil company, to master sailing, and even to become a pilot. Sadly, Timothy passed away in August of 2016.
Congratulations to the 13 WCS students selected to the South-Central KMEA All-District band and orchestra!
