LANSING KANSAS SCHOLARSHIP FUND INC.

 

Established in April 1987 with two scholarships for Frank R. Graham and Irene Johnsmeyer, the Lansing Kansas Scholarship Fund, Inc. is the legacy of Earl Johnsmeyer, former counselor, coach and his wife Irene, both former teachers at Lansing High School. Over the years, several other memorial scholarships have been added to the Lansing Kansas Scholarship Fund, Inc. and have assisted hundreds of graduating seniors from Lansing High School with their higher education costs. Representatives of each scholarship sit on the Board of Directors of the non-profit. All donations are tax deductible. Contributions are welcome because they ultimately help the graduating seniors of Lansing High School. We hope the efforts of these special community members, their love of education and their dedication to Lansing schools will live on through these annual scholarships. The Lansing  Kansas Scholarship Fund Inc. is a non-profit organization under section 501(c)3 of the United States Internal Revenue Code.
