Anisia Brumley, senior at Northeast Magnet High School, has won the 2017 Wichita State University Clay Barton Scholarship, one of WSU’s largest scholarships.

Brumley will receive $12,000 a year for four years to attend WSU.

Brumley is a member of the National Honor Society and has worked extensively on her school’s student council. She plans on studying business and human resource management at WSU.

The Clay Barton Scholarship was developed in 1991 by late Rent-A-Center co-founder W. Frank Barton in his son’s name. Clay Barton died from cancer in 1988 at age 20. Barton Scholars are expected to excel in “academic, leadership and service, fitting the pieces of their lives intricately into a structure that has lasting value.”
