Update on Westport High: The new members of the school board will take time to familiarize themselves with the repurposing process and and the specifics of Westport High School before voting on the administration's recommended sale of the property. A vote is tentatively planned for the May 28 board meeting; we will provide an update when that date has been finalized.

We appreciate the community's patience. If you have any questions or comments in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us at repurposing@kcpublicschools.org.

Tonight, MRIGlobal will present two Paseo students with full scholarships to the Kansas City Art Institute's Pre-College Art Lab.

Junior Clinton Long and sophomore Dakota Niederhauser will receive three hours of college credit upon completion of the Art Lab program.

“Scholarships to Kansas City Art Institute’s Pre-College Art Lab present Clinton and Dakota with three intense, art-filled weeks to experience the commitment it takes to be an artist,” said Pamela Sahl, Paseo Academy Chair of Visual Arts. “It’s a rare opportunity few young artists receive and quite an honor for our students. I applaud MRIGlobal for its generosity and commitment to Paseo.”

In the last five years, MRIGlobal has provided scholarships to nine Paseo students, selected for their artistic and scholastic accomplishment.

The scholarship presentation will be made during the senior art show and sale at Paseo Academy, 4747 Flora Ave., on Thursday, April 17 at 6:45 p.m.
