Julie Katzer presented with Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2017 Excellence Scholarship

Julie Katzer, student at Central High School, was presented a $10,000 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2017 Excellence Scholarship  at a recognition luncheon hosted by Herb Kohl, Wisconsin philanthropist, former US senator and businessman.

In March, scholarship recipients had been informed that each would receive a $5,000 scholarship, but in a surprise announcement at the recognition luncheon, Herb Kohl revealed that he had decided to double the scholarship amount from $5,000 per scholar to $10,000.

The Herb Kohl Excellence Scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated academic potential, outstanding leadership, citizenship, community service, integrity and other special talents.

The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has been recognizing educational excellence since 1990 by annually awarding scholarships to 200 graduating high school students throughout Wisconsin. Since it was established in 1990, the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has awarded $11.7 million to Wisconsin students, teachers, principals and schools.
