At the invitation of Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, Nickelson Lee Davis of Fort Scott High School, son of Jason and Nicole Davis, was selected to attend the 41st Annual Governor’s Scholars Awards Program on May 5, 2024, in Topeka.


The recognition ceremony honors the top academic one-percent of Kansas high school seniors.  Scholars are selected from accredited public and private schools in the state.


“These high school seniors have shown dedication in their studies and a commitment to learning.  They’ve earned this honor, and I want to congratulate them on this achievement,” Kelly said.  “We also should recognize their families, teachers and mentors for helping these outstanding students achieve their academic goals.”


This program is coordinated for the governor by the Confidence in Kansas Public Education Task Force, which was formed 41 years ago to strengthen confidence in public education.  The following organizations are members of the task force: American Association of University Women, Kansas State Board of Education, Kansas Association of School Boards, Kansas Congress of Parents and Teachers, Kansas State Department of Education, Kansas State High School Activities Association, Kansas National Education Association, Kansas League of Women Voters and United School Administrators of Kansas.


As a distinguished Kansas Governor’s Scholar, Davis was given the opportunity to recognize an exceptional educator in his life with a Teacher of Influence certificate.  Davis chose to recognize FSHS math teacher, Morgan Felt.


Davis is a 2024 graduate at FSHS and is attending the University of Kansas, School of Engineering in August of 2024.
