I have lived in Atchison for more than 5 years and it is a a great place to retire and raise children. I wish there was more diversity in this town and more respect within our youth. I would love to see more opportunity and resources in Atchison for our youth, elderly and middle class. I do love this town, but like every city, we can always improve.

Atchison is a wonderful place to live but like anything there are flaws. I'd like to see better programs for the youth of Atchison, to help keep them out of trouble and away from drugs and violence.
The scholarship website was very nice. Very easy to use, I like how it guides you and pretty much answers each and every question for you as well as gives you good interesting suggestions. I recommend using this scholarship website to anyone looking to find financial help online. THANK you.
