    Wyatt Tate receives Luther C. Skelton Scholarship

    Northwest Missouri State University student Wyatt Tate, of Hopkins, Missouri, is the recipient of the Luther C. (Luke) Skelton Scholarship for the 2016-2017 academic year.

    Tate is a freshman mass media major with a broadcast and production emphasis. He is the son of Warren and Jeanette Tate.

    To be considered for the scholarship, students must be enrolled in full course load for the academic year. Preference is given to students from North Nodaway High School in Hopkins, as well as students preparing to teach as evidenced by a declared major in any content area within the field of teacher education.

    This scholarship honors Luther “Luke” C. Skelton, who served as a teacher, coach and superintendent at Hopkins Public Schools between 1942 and 1950. Skelton was known for having an outstanding ability to discern his students’ individual talents and needs, as well as his unfaltering commitment to helping students develop into intelligent and thoughtful men and women.
