Nominations are open for the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools’ (KCKPS) 2016 Reasons to Believe Alumni Honor Roll, part of a coordinated plan to spotlight alumni successes to encourage and inspire today’s students.

KCKPS established the Reasons to Believe program in 2002 to generate pride and celebrate the progress being made throughout the district.

Nominees must:

  • Be graduates of a KCKPS high school
  • Be successful in their chosen business, profession or life work
  • Be a person of integrity and stature that KCKPS would take pride in recognizing
  • Have demonstrated the importance of their education from KCKPS

Nomination forms can be downloaded from the KCKPS website, www.kckps.org/recognition/alumni or call (913) 279-2225 to request one. The deadline for returning nominations is Monday, June 13, 2016.
