KC Scholars Contact

Hello scholars! My name is Kaylee Sundeen, and I am your KC Scholars Program Coordinator. I will be your go-to for everything related to KC Scholars. I work closely with your college adviser to make sure you are on track to receive the scholarship at the end of your senior year. A little about me – I moved to Kansas City after graduating from K-State (go Cats!) and have loved living here ever since. I love my two dogs, Ollie and Cooper, trying new restaurants in KC and helping students get to and graduate from college! I’m so excited to work with you!
