Kansas City Interbranch Council Reentry Awards

Each year, the four branches in the KC Metro area (Kansas City, Independence, Kansas City Northland, and Parkville) give scholarships to recognize area college students who have returned to college after a lapse of five or more years in their education.
We recognized and celebrated our 2022 scholarship recipients at a brunch held at Trezo Mare Restaurant on April 9.
