Boil water advisory lifted for Wyandotte County

A boil water advisory for Board of Public Utilities customers in Edwardsville, southwestern Kansas City, Kan., and Lake of the Forest has been lifted, according to a BPU spokesman.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment lifted the boil advisory on Saturday, the spokesman stated.

The boil advisory was originally issued after a loss of water pressure because of a water main break near I-70 and 86th Street, according to a BPU spokesman. Testing has shown there is no evidence of contamination and all other risk factors have been resolved.

KU to honor 183 seniors from Wyandotte County high schools

Students from nine Kansas high schools will be honored Tuesday, Nov. 15, by the University of Kansas Alumni Association and KU Endowment.

A total of 183 seniors from high schools in Wyandotte County will be recognized for their academic achievements and named Kansas Honor Scholars at a 7 p.m. program and reception at Wyandotte High School, 2501 Minnesota Ave., Kansas City, Kan.

Since 1971, the Kansas Honors Program has recognized over 125,000 scholars who rank in the top 10 percent of their high school senior classes and are selected regardless of occupational plans or higher education goals. Each year, the KU Alumni Association and its volunteers hold 36 programs that reach all 105 counties across the state and include approximately 360 high schools.

During the ceremony, each student will receive a Webster’s New College Dictionary.

Stephen Kapp, interim dean of social welfare at KU, will speak to the students and their parents and guests.

Community volunteers collect reservations, coordinate details and serve as local contacts for the event. Chris Schneider and Stephanie Parker, of Kansas City, Kan., are program coordinators.

The Kansas Honors Program is made possible by KU Endowment and proceeds from the Jayhawk license plate program. The Class of 2017 scholars:
