Marching Cobras Scholarship Awards Dinner

By Editorial Staff

Nine area students have received college scholarships that were funded by Kansas City 's securities professionals. The Kansas City Securities Association has awarded scholarships for 21 years. Each award provides the student with up to $2,000 for each of four years.

At a May 16 program, five former members of the Kansas City Marching Cobras received scholarships:

Keana DeShawn Jones-Jarvis, a senior at Raytown South High School who plans to attend Central Missouri State University.

Jacqueline Marie Ralls, senior class president at Southeast High School, who wants to study at Central Missouri State University.

Cristian Bernadine Randle, a Center High School senior who plans to attend Grambling State University.

Montae Lonel Richardson, a senior at Washington High School who plans to attend Dillard University.

Danielle T. Sandefur, a graduate of the Paseo Performing Arts Academy who will attend the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

Two other students currently attending the University of Missouri-Kansas City received student-athlete scholarships from the group. Evan Nicholas Clark is a freshman and a member of UMKC's men's tennis team. Anna Grodzinsky, also a freshman at UMKC, is on the women's tennis team.

The securities group jointly awarded two other scholarships with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. This is the ninth year of their award program.

Jared G. Young, a senior at Schlagle High School, received the John "Buck" O'Neil Award. Sadiq Ikram Muhammed, a senior at Hickman Mills High School who wants to attend the University of Kansas, received the Monte Irvin Award.

The securities association also said it had raised an additional $125,000 for its scholarship fund, which has awarded $552,000 in more than 130 scholarships. A dozen other college students previously awarded scholarships continue to receive money this year.
