Melanie Watkins received a $750 scholarship from the Kansas Endowment Association of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Ladies Auxiliary.

Her eligibility for the scholarship was through her grandfather.

Graduating seniors, people already in college or those who decide to start college later in life may apply. They must be members of the VFW or Ladies Auxiliary or have a parent or grandparent who is a member to be eligible.

Applications come out each school year with a deadline in early February.

Watkins was honored at the annual Loyalty Day dinner. She was presented with a check from the Ladies Auxiliary Post No. 971 in Newton.
