Zach Minton, a senior at Manhattan High, was awarded the Putnam Scholarship during Scholarship Day ceremonies Feb. 11 at K-State.
The Putnam Scholarship is a $32,000 renewable scholarship over four years. The student receives $8,000 a year as long as he or she maintains at least a 3.5 GPA at K-State.
Students are eligible with a minimum 32 ACT (1400 SAT).
During K-State’s annual Scholarship Day, students and their parents were guests of the university at a banquet. Throughout the day, they attended meetings with academic deans and student life officials.
