Mikaela Karanja, the defending Class 5A state champion who has led Durant to consecutive high school team championships, has received a Presidential Scholarship from Delaware State University, paying her full tuition, room and board.
“We are very proud of Mikaela here in Durant,” said coach Tanner Dupree.
Karnaja plans to major in biological sciences and eventually attend medical school.
