Scherz announces 9th annual Scholarship for Volunteer Community Service

Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., Verona Town councilman, has again created the Fred Scherz, Sr., Memorial Scholarship for Volunteer Community Service. The ninth annual scholarship will be in the amount of $250 and will be awarded by Fritz 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, 2018. Additionally, the student must have lived in Verona since at least Dec. 1, 2017, and must be voluntarily engaged in community service or must have created a community project that benefits the town.

“I did the inaugural scholarship back in the spring of 2010 as a way to honor my Dad’s memory,” said Scherz. “My Dad believed in giving back to his community and took pride in helping out so many people. Last year, I had co-winners, Racheal Cadrette and Olivia Musacchio. I plan on self-funding this year’s scholarship in my dad’s name and feel that if students get started in volunteering at a younger age they’ll continue to do so once they’re out of school. I’m a strong believer that volunteerism is a great thing for any community.”
