Holiday fatalities: Two killed in Wichita rollover Two men killed Sunday morning when their car rolled off an interstate loop in southwest Wichita were the state’s first traffic fatalities of the extended holiday counting period. The Kansas Highway Patrol identified the victims as the driver, Arnoldo Fernandez, 22, and passenger Javier Lopez, 20. Both were from Wichita. A patrol dispatcher said Fernandez’s car was southbound on Interstate 235 when he lost control. The car went into a ditch and rolled, ejecting both men. They were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which happened shortly after 4:45 a.m. Five people were killed in Kansas during the 78-hour Memorial Day holiday period a year ago. The holiday weekend counting period began at 6 p.m. Friday and runs through 11:59 p.m. today. The record for a 78-hour counting period is 19, set in 1973. __________________ Kansas University: Education reform projects chosen as best in state Ten school reform projects initiated by Kansas teachers have won a competition sponsored by the Teacher Development Coalition at Kansas University. Each project will receive $500 as winners of the “What’s Working Well with School Reform in Kansas” competition, which rewards reforms that have improved student achievement. “Students in elementary, middle and secondary schools, and older students in transition programs, are benefiting from the commitment and enthusiasm of dedicated educators, parents and their community,” said Phyllis Nolan, coalition project director. The coalition, funded by a federal grant through the Kansas Department of Education and directed from the KU School of Education, received 44 applications from teachers, administrators and parents representing 31 Kansas communities. Winning applications are from Derby, El Dorado, Independence, Wichita, Manhattan, Paola, Lyons, Olathe, Topeka and Quinter. __________________ Education: West Point cadet to share academy experiences Lawrence resident and West Point cadet John Finch will present a West Point orientation briefing this week in Lawrence. Finch will speak from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday at the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt. Any student interested in attending the U.S. military academy at West Point is encouraged to attend.
