College notes
Baker University freshman Sarah Braught, Eudora, is one of eight Baker students who will perform with the Kansas Intercollegiate Band at the Kansas Music Educators Convention Feb. 24 in Wichita.
Braught plays the contrabass clarinet for Baker University's Symphonic Band.
Janet Harkins, Kelli Lake, Matthew Linzer, Kelly Meacham, Jared Reeves, Linda Schieferecke, Marla Schleuder, Nathanael Schonberg and Easan Selvan, all of Eudora, Eudora High School graduate Lindsey White, and Matthew Brown, Parker Guidry, Kevin Howard, John Nelson and Caitlin Rose, all of Linwood, were among the more than 4,550 Kansas University undergraduate students who earned honor roll distinction for the fall 2005 semester.
The honor roll comprises undergraduates who meet requirements in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and in the schools of allied health, architecture and urban design, business, education, engineering, fine arts, journalism, nursing and social welfare.
Honor roll criteria vary among the university's academic units. Some schools honor the top 10 percent of students enrolled, some establish a minimum grade-point average and others raise the minimum GPA for each year students are in school. Students must complete a minimum number of credit hours to be considered for the honor roll.
Crystal Conner and Roshena Schmidt, both of Eudora, were two of the nearly 1,800 students who earned semester honors from Kansas State University for their academic performance during the 2005 fall semester.
Students earning semester honor receive commendations from their deans, with the honors recorded on their permanent academic records.
Students receiving semester honors rank in the top 10 percent of their class within their respective colleges and were enrolled in at least 12 semester hours of graded course work.

After-school program
For Eudora High School students who would like to utilize the optional after-school program, an activity bus is now available to take them back into town at 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The students will be dropped off at the Eudora Community Learning Center at 10th and Main streets when the program is finished each day.

School greeters needed
