A passion for tackling food insecurity through public policy has earned Iola native Clara Wicoff, a junior at Kansas State University, a 2019 Harry S. Truman Scholarship.
Wicoff, daughter of Lisa and Joel Wicoff, was nominated by KSU for the prestigious scholarship that provides up to $30,000 for post-graduate studies concerning public service.
In a phone interview with the Register Friday afternoon, Wicoff said her interests lie in childhood hunger and nutrition in the United States.
