Kansas student surprised with scholarship after Mass

November 27, 2013

The entire school was there to see Katherine Moore get the surprise of a lifetime.

At the end of Mass at Hayden Catholic High School in Topeka, Kan., Tuesday, Admissions Counselors Killian Kramer and Blair Whitney presented her with a giant check covering the entire cost of her Stephens education.

Moore will pursue a theatre degree with an emphasis on musical theatre. She told a reporter from WIBW in Topeka that Stephens has one of the best theatre programs.

"I'm very excited," she said. "They really propel you to work in the theatre industry...After I visited, I thought 'This is where I need to be going to school."

Moore is one of three to receive a full tuition scholarship following Scholars Weekend.

The scholarship, she said, "is such a blessing. I can't tell you how happy I am."

Moore's family was on hand to see her receive the award.
