KANSAS CITY, M. -- The MLB-Royals All-Star Scholars program has identified five high school seniors as the first recipients of the MLB-Royals All-Star Scholars.

They are: Rebecca Atchley, William Chrisman; Roda Mohamud, Southwest; Kelsey Schriver, Piper; Danyale Anthony, Wyandotte; and Claire Mansure, Lincoln.

The students were selected from the 20/20 Leadership program, which serves students from moderate- to low-income families to educate and expose them to community issues, develop personal and leadership skills and build community-wide relationships.

The selected students will have the opportunity for a $2,500 per-year scholarship, renewable up to four years. Recipients may select a major of their choice at any two- or four-year college/university in Missouri or Kansas.

The recipients were selected on a number of criteria, including academic achievement and attendance records, financial need and demonstrated community involvement.

The inaugural scholarship winners will be recognized during All-Star Week in Kansas City and will serve as volunteers at various All-Star events.
