Sumner High School, named for Charles Sumner, an eminent scholar, abolitionist and U. S. Senator from Massachusetts, served and educated youth in the predominately Black community from 1905-1978. The original building was located at Ninth Street and Washington Blvd. The "new" building, located at Eighth & Oakland Avenue, was completed and occupied in January, 1940.

 

From the beginning, the faculty and staff at Sumner High School established for their students, the highest standards of education, morals, and ethics. The curriculum emphasized college preparation classes, the classics, mathematics and science. Teachers instilled in students a determination to overcome inequities, and to succeed "in spite of."

 

At the end of the 1978 school year, with the implementation of the school district's desegregation plan, "Sumner High School", ceased to exist. The building is now known as "Sumner Academy" but it continues to model the "old" Sumner High School's high standards for education excellence.

 

Alumni today credit much of Sumner's success to the leadership of two long-time principals: John A. Hodge, who served from 1916-1951 and Solomon H. Thompson, principal from 1951-1972. The Hodge-Thompson Scholarship was named to honor these two great educators and leaders.

 

The first Hodge-Thompson awards were made in 1989. Since that time, nearly 100 scholarships have been awarded to area students. The Sumner High School Alumni Association Scholarship Committee will continue to work toward providing assistance to deserving graduates of District #500 in Kansas City, Kansas.

 

You are invited to apply for scholarship assistance if you meet the eligibility criteria included in the application packet. The application deadline is March 23, 2018. ALL MATERIALS MUST BE POSTMARKED OR RECEIVED BY THE SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE THAN THAT DATE.

 

Scholarship recipients will be notified by mail. All applications become the property of the Sumner High School Alumni Association Scholarship Fund. Information provided on the application form is confidential and for use by the Scholarship Selection Committee only. If you have questions, please contact the committee at 913-558-1962.

 

Application packets can be picked up on the Scholarship Board outside of the College & Career Center.

Good morning SENIOR Students and Parents,

 

KU GEAR UP would like to announce our Spring Break Campus Visit options for you and your parent.  This year, it is a lot different than what we have done in the past, but we feel it will give students another option for continuing their education, a lot cheaper than a 4 year institution, in the state of Kansas, but not in KCK, and the feeling of being "away" from home.  The application is attached and copies are available with your FA teachers, the GEAR UP office, and the College & Career Center.

 

Community College provides an affordable way to continue one's education, take the basic classes needed in a smaller setting, and provide the space to get adapted to college life and adulting.  The average tuition cost at a community college is approximately $3000 and at a 4yr institution is approximately $26,000.  The maximum Pell Grant for 2017-2018 was $5,920.  We want to make sure that your college choice is also the BEST FIT financially.  There is no commitment to attend any of these schools, but I challenge to attend at least one of the visits to look through a different lens.

 

This year we will be visiting: Allen County Community College, Ft. Scott Community College, Coffeyville Community College, Independence Community College, Hutchinson Community College, Butler Community College, and Wichita State University.  Please see the permission form for dates and details.  Most of these trips will be one-day trips to allow more students to be able to participate and parents will not have to be off the whole week if you choose to attend with your student. Each trip is capped at 50 students, so please get your permission slips in ASAP, they are due February 28.

 

If you have questions/concerns, please reach out to the KU GEAR UP Staff. Parents, if you wish to attend, please just note that on the permission form itself.

 

Thanks we look forward to providing great opportunities for you in the future!

 

Ms. White

KU GEAR UP

It takes courage to stand up for your beliefs. Some elected officials risk their careers to do what they believe is right for their community and country.

 

In Profiles in Courage, John. F. Kennery recounted the stories of eight U.S. Senators who put the nation's interest above their own. They were guided by integrity and conscience, not party pressure or fear of losing the next election.
