Since 1962, Deseret News has honored exceptional high school seniors. Deseret Management Corp. has continued the tradition 55 years later by offering scholarships to the students through the Sterling Scholar program.
Deseret News and KSL Broadcast Group directly administer the Wasatch Front Region, one of five throughout the state. The other regions where the Sterling Scholar program is independently implemented are Central Utah, Northeast Utah, Southeast Utah and Southwest Utah.
On March 9, West High student Kathy Liu was named the winner in the Science category in the 2017 Deseret News/KSL Sterling Scholar Awards Program, as well as the General Sterling Scholar among the 14 Wasatch Front winners.
