Memorial scholarship emphasizes volunteer/community service efforts
The deadline to apply for the Fred Scherz Sr. Memorial Scholarship for Volunteer Community Service that was created by Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., councilman on the Verona Town Board in Verona, is May 24, 2019.
The scholarship is $250 and will be awarded by Scherz to a town of Verona student who is on track to graduate from 12th grade at a high school (public or private) or home school by June 30, 2019.
Additionally, the student must have lived in the town of Verona since at least Dec. 1, 2018, and must be voluntarily engaged in community service or must have created a community project.
“I’m reminding students from the town of Verona of the deadline, as I am hopeful quite a few will apply for the scholarship,” said Scherz. “As in previous years, I’ve received inquiries about the scholarship, so I’m looking forward to receiving the applications and finding out about all the good things that local students are doing in the community.”
