North Kansas City School District
High school scholars: Sophomores were selected for the Missouri Scholars Academy, a three-week residential academic program in June on the campus of the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Selected to participate were Gordon Burris and Rebecca Robbins from Staley High School; Christopher Fusco, Abrielle Green and Brady O’Donnell from Oak Park High School; Payton Galloway and Tristan Lindeman from North Kansas City High School; and Collin Monsees and Dominic Rizzo from Winnetonka High School.
The academy is designed to give academically gifted students an opportunity to pursue studies that differ from traditional educational programs. Students select a primary area of interest in math, science, social studies or humanities.
Participants attend guest lectures, forums and also spend time in a field different from their major area of interest.
