Shawnee Mission North senior receives scholarship opportunities

By Roberta Pardo

Shawnee Mission North High School senior Jorge Luis Coromac’s family could not be more excited for him.
Coromac has become one of the latest recipients of scholarship opportunities offered by the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation’s Scholarship Shawnee Mission program. Along with 600 other students of Shawnee Mission North, he recently received a letter offering him choices for his college education.
“It was great to know (of) all the college opportunities that I had and earned,” Coromac said.
Coromac received offers from 13 colleges that amounted to $687,600 in scholarship offers in total — a feat he hopes makes his parents proud.
“I have struggled during school and I managed to get good grades,” he said. “This packet shows my parents how I did.”
His father, Jorge D. Coromac, said they are proud of Jorge Luis for getting this opportunity.
“It is an outstanding opportunity that each student deserves as they continue building a bright future,” he said. “We are so proud of Jorge Luis for his continued academic success, and his commitment to continue building his knowledge and skills.”
Coromac’s plan is to attend the University of Kansas and study education or sports medicine. On top of his classes, he is a member of the school swimming, strolling strings, and track and field teams. He volunteers in the Kansas City area and works after school at the new Merriam Community Center as a lifeguard.
The Scholarship Shawnee Mission program is a new initiative by the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation to bring scholarships to students in the cluster of Shawnee Mission schools by working with college and university partners connecting students with their futures.
