The 2013-2014 school year is off to a great start, and so too, is the KMOX/Southeast Missouri State University Student of Achievement Program! Entering its 21st year, the KMOX/Southeast Missouri State University Student of Achievement Program acknowledges junior-level high school students who deserve recognition for their achievements. This program is the most premiere and reputable program in the Greater St. Louis metro area emphasizing the positive things our young adults are accomplishing.
These students can only be recommended by high school counselors or principals. Nominees for the Student of Achievement Program must:
- Be members of the high school graduating class of 2015
- Have earned a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.50 at the end of their sophomore year
- Have a demonstrated record of participation and leadership in school and community activities
Due to the number of superior students in the area, we can only accept one student nominee from each school.
Thirty students will be selected as 2014 KMOX/Southeast Missouri State University Students of Achievement. These 30 students will receive a Student of Achievement scholarship ($3,000) to attend Southeast Missouri State University in the fall of 2015. The Student of Achievement Scholarship is renewable for three additional academic years with a 3.5 cumulative Southeast grade point average and annual completion of 30 Southeast credit hours. The Southeast Student of Achievement Scholarship is a Southeast academic scholarship and it cannot be combined with any other merit scholarship (the student will be awarded the highest valued scholarship upon admission).
Student of Achievement recipients will be interviewed and highlighted on News Radio 1120 KMOX. In addition, the students will be honored at the Student of Achievement luncheon in May 2014, to which the student may invite their nominator and two guests. Each honoree will receive a plaque, gifts from sponsors and their scholarship certificate from Southeast Missouri State University
Nominations ended Thursday, October 31, 2013.
