Marion student's scholarship is an 'answered prayer'

Marion senior Drew Helmer chose Wichita State University as her college more than a year ago, but had no idea how she was going to pay for college. That question was answered Thursday, when she was awarded a 4-year, $85,000 scholarship to attend Wichita State University by the Rudd Foundation.

Drew’s mother, Kim, found out the night before, and said she had a difficult time keeping the secret. “I came to my parents crying because it was so many answered prayers,” Kim said.
