Two Western Plains students have recently been recognized by two prominent universities in the state of Kansas.  

Senior Logan Mauch was recognized by Kansas University at the KU Honors Scholars Banquet, and junior HarLeigh Flax was recognized by Wichita State University at the WSU Honors Scholar Reception. 

Mauch was recognized for being in the top 10% of Kansas seniors. There are several different KU Honors Banquets held at different locations in the state. He attended the banquet in Garden City. Attendees received a medal to honor their outstanding high school achievements. 

Mauch, who will graduate in May, has compiled an impressive list of academic achievements in his time at Western Plains, including holding a 4.0 grade point average while taking up to 11 college credit hours a semester while also earning high school credits and being incredibly involved in his school. 

Flax was recognized by WSU for being in the top 10% of Kansas juniors. She attended the banquet held at Wichita State University. Flax also received a medal to honor her achievement.

Flax will not graduate until 2020, but is currently a very active member of her high school both academically and athletically, as well as being involved in other extracurricular activities.

Congratulations to both of these fine young scholars. You make us very proud!

Mauch is the son of J.R. and Julie Mauch of Ness City. Flax is the daughter of Terry Flax and Troyette Lawson-Flax of Ransom.
