Newman University has announced its Cardinal Newman Scholarship winners for the upcoming school year.

The scholarship is the school’s most competitive and also its largest financially. The five recipients this year will receive scholarships worth nearly $120,000 over four years.

The winners are Gabby Altenor, Kapaun Mount Carmel High School; Kayla Garvert, Plainville High; Carolina Mariscal, Wichita North; Shayla To, Campus High, and Marlie Wagner, Bishop Carroll.

The five were among 26 candidates interviewed by the selection committee earlier this month. Candidates must have at least a 3.9 high school GPA and a 29 composite ACT score to be eligible for the award.

Founded in 1933, Newman University has about 2,500 undergraduate students.
