SC Student Jordan Burford Receives Maud Wyatt Recognition Scholarship

The Kansas Independent College Foundation, (KICF), on behalf of its 19-member institutions, is proud to announce the 2024 Maud Wyatt Recognition Scholarship Recipients.

Jordan Burford, a psychology major from Andover, is the recipient from Southwestern College. She is the daughter of Theresa Maples and Kevin Burford and a 2021 graduate of Andover Central High School.

KICF awards up to 19 individual scholarships, one for a student at each Foundation member institution. The recipients are all full-time, degree-seeking students on the cusp of graduation, and have each demonstrated excellence in academics, character and integrity, and a commitment to the value of a private college education in Kansas. These students maintain GPAs of 3.5 or above while also contributing to their respective communities.

“The students at Kansas’ independent colleges are going to change the world for the better. It’s a privilege to support them in their endeavors and we’re grateful to Maud Wyatt for making it possible for us to do so,” says Matthew Lindsey, president of KICF.

The scholarship was established in 1995 through the generosity of Maud Wyatt, whose bequest has supported the work of KICF and its institutions since 1961. The Kansas Independent College Foundation seeks to develop, promote, and direct unified approaches to selected corporations, foundations, and individuals for financial support of Kansas’ independent colleges and universities.
