Dr. Timothy Kaufman, Chair of the Professional Program in Education at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, recently presented four scholarships to well-deserving students in the education program.

Erin Peterson, a senior from Mosinee, will receive the Ronald Dhuey scholarship. Mrs. Sharon Dhuey established this scholarship in 2000 in honor of her late husband, Ronald A. Dhuey, UW-Green Bay’s first registrar who retired from the University in 1994.

This scholarship is awarded to continuing students who have been admitted to the education program. In addition, students will have demonstrated leadership skills and evidence of community and/or campus involvement.

Philip Goes, a senior from Marinette, and Stacy TeStroote, a junior from Cedar Grove, were awarded Killoran scholarships, named in honor of Sally and Bernie Killoran, long-time friends of UW-Green Bay.

 Scholarship recipients must have upper classman status, accepted into the education program, in excellent academic standing, and have demonstrated scholastic and practical excellence in classroom and out-of-classroom settings.

Laura Garrow, a junior from Appleton, was presented a Lucy Krchma Education Scholarship, created in 1986 by family and friends of the Krchma family. Lucy Krchma was a teacher for 50 years and taught in Madison and in the Luxemburg-Casco area.

This scholarship is intended to recognize and assist students who achieve a record of academic excellence in the education program. Evidence of past and current leadership activities and community service, particularly of an educational nature, is considered in the awarding of this scholarship.
