Spring 2022 Scholarships for AW Seniors

Along with six “Generals” scholarships and the Les Disher Ag.-Sci. Scholarship, the AW Alumni Association added two Public Safety scholarship in 2021 which is funded by area police, fire and village/township governments. This scholarship is now in its fourth year. In 2019 two additional scholarships were added. The Patrick Short Skilled Trades scholarship for A.W.H.S./Penta students who are interested in pursuing a career in an area that demands specific training or an apprentice program. And the Fred Dais Future Educator scholarship for a student interested in a teaching career.
In the spring of 2020, the Randee DeBolt Masciola Nursing and Public Health Scholarship was added. And in 2021-22 a Military Dependent Scholarship and a History Scholarship were added

These additions bring the total to fourteen scholarships of $1,000 each
being offered to AWHS and/or Penta seniors.

Our appeal to AW alumni, the public and to A.W. employees in the past has been a great help in funding our scholarships. We are hoping that the new specific types of scholarships will increase interest and lead to even more support this year from folks involved in nursing, the building trades and our veterans.
