Steve Sears, SM North ’79, and John Lavryssen established the NORTH STAR award at the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation in 2011. “This scholarship program is a simple way to give back to an institution that did a lot for me,” says Mr. Sears. “My hope is it encourages current and future students to take advantage of all that North has to offer.”

Now in its fifth year, NORTH STAR Scholars include: Crysta Moon, Andrew “A.J.” Bonci, 2014; Kassandra Valles, Joel Steelman, 2013; Katherine Fleming, Tucker Love, 2012; Ben Enyart, Liz Finn, 2011.
