C.O. Wright Scholarship

Charles Omega Wright served the Kansas State Teachers Association as its Executive Director for 3 decades. He wrote the definitive history of the Kansas State Teachers Association on its 100th Anniversary in 1963. Under C.O.’s leadership, the Association became a force in Kansas education.

Philosopher, fighter, builder, friend, writer, politician, humanitarian, and certainly educator, are among the many words used to describe this very influential Kansas leader.

The C.O. Wright Scholarship was established in August 1982 to commemorate his work for KSTA. The $250 award is designated for a KNEA Student Member.

To be eligible applicants must agree to be a continuing member of the Kansas National Education Association. The award will be mailed directly to the College Registrar’s office prior to enrollment.

Applications must be postmarked by February 1.
