Yes, you must attend a KC Scholars virtual orientation to remain in the KC Scholars program. If you do not attend a scheduled orientation session you will be dismissed from KC Scholars and no longer eligible for the KC Scholars UMKC Scholarship.
Parents are not required to attend your orientation session but highly encouraged to learn more about KC Scholars and your UMKC Scholarship. If your parent(s) are available to sit next to you to view the orientation, please encourage them to join you.
Hello scholars! My name is Cherelle Washington, and I am your KC Scholars Program Manager. I will be your go-to for everything related to KC Scholars. I work closely with your college adviser to make sure you are on track to receive the scholarship at the end of your senior year. A little about me – I am from St. Louis (314!) I enjoy spending time with my family, working out, and spending time outdoors. I love helping students get to college and I am excited to work with you!
