Saint Francis High School
Matilda Anderson Receives Golden West Scholarship
Matilda Anderson will receive a $1,000 Golden West Scholarship for 2019.
A 2019 graduate of Saint Francis Indian School, Matilda was selected for a number of merit-based attributes including leadership, academic achievement, civic and extracurricular activities, and the motivation to serve and succeed.
Matilda’s activities include student council, basketball, volleyball, golf and NHS. She plans to attend school at either Haskell Indian Nations University, the University of Kansas or Kansas State University.
“Golden West scholarships are awarded to students who excel in school and in the community,” says Golden West General Manager Denny Law. “We’re proud to help students like Matilda further their education and become a leader of tomorrow.”
Now in its 21st year, the Golden West Scholarship program promotes educational opportunity for students within the Golden West service area. The Wall-based company has given nearly 850 scholarships since the program began. Each year, Golden West awards $1,000 scholarships to 45 graduating seniors, one for each high school in the Golden West exchanges plus one at-large scholarship.
