Sydney Cook

Sydney is a senior at Yorktown High School. She plans to attend Ball State University to study pre-medicine. She is the daughter of Chris Cook and Kristen Cook.

The Robert and Wanda McKibben Scholarship was created by Robert McKibben in memory of his wife and their life together. Robert and Wanda McKibben were both raised in Yorktown and graduated from Yorktown schools. They raised a family in the same area. “My parents were very active in their support of Yorktown sports, particularly high school basketball. So, my father directed that primary consideration be given to student athletes,” said Jeffrey McKibben, son of Robert and Wanda McKibben. “In addition, it was important that the prospective student distinguish themselves by their involvement in giving of their time and/or abilities to the Yorktown community.”
