Teacher, Mentor, Coach or Friend,

Balancing homework, school & community involvement, and one’s personal life is a difficult challenge in high school.  Some students do this so well we feel they should be recognized. Runza® Restaurants and KETV created a partnership to honor senior students for their achievements in the classroom and in the community & provide them a $500 scholarship for college.

The Runza® Student of the Week will be featured in a special weekly segment during the Sunday 10 o’clock news broadcast. 

Who is the student that gives his or her all, both in school, for the school, or in the community (music, drama, art, speech/debate, civic involvement, sports, etc.)? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could tell them all of their hard work is appreciated?  You are welcome to nominate as many students as you would like.
