Thanks to donor generosity, the Foundation was able to award seven (7) $500 scholarships this year. The Michael Reinhardt recipients were Joey Culhane, Jordan Honken, and Jonathon Koenen. The Michael Reinhardt applicants were asked to write an essay describing how they have challenged themselves during their lives. The Foundation for R-P Schools recipients were Jordan Honken, Jonathan Koenen, Josh Brown, and Connor Johanson. These applicants were asked to write an essay describing ways they would promote the Foundation's mission. Congratulations to all these students.

Thank you to National Honor Society students who made phone calls asking for pledges during the Foundation's second annual scholarship drive. One of the goals of the Foundation for Rushford-Peterson Schools is to promote and award scholarship opportunities (post-high school training or college) to current high school seniors and alumni of Rushford-Peterson Schools. Once again the drive was successful as $2,683.00 has been collected so far. This surpasses last year's total of $2,200. Thank you to all community members for your generous donations.
