SHS seniors Paola Flores and Cody Hofrock, center, each received a scholarship for $1,000 from Kid's Plus Inc., earlier this week. This fall, Flores will attend Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyo. with the goal to later transfer to the University of Wyoming, and Hofrock will play football with Concordia University in Seward.

Two Sidney High School seniors were awarded $1,000 scholarships from Kid's Plus Inc. this week in recognition of their academic accomplishments.

"This is the third year for our scholarship," Kid's Plus Director Cassie Challburg said.

Challburg said the organization offers the scholarships to two Cheyenne County students every year. She said after receiving applications, a committee then selects the top five candidates and sets up interviews with the students.

"We received 15 applications this year," Challburg said. "We picked a good group of kids, and it was hard to choose from them."
