A program encouraging Pittsburg State supporters to sport PSU license plates on their cars in Kansas and now Missouri is resulting in more scholarship dollars for students.

The Legacy Scholarship program, facilitated by the Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations, awarded more than 100 students scholarships from revenue earned through the Gorilla License Plate program.

The Legacy scholarships are awarded to students who had a parent graduate from PSU and who carry a 3.0 GPA or scored at least a 21 on their ACT.

The office held a congratulatory reception for the students, who shared a total of $40,000 in scholarship money. Students from counties that have a large number of license plate holders received slightly higher awards.
