Two Area Students Earn Kohl Foundation Initiative Scholarship

Two area high school students have earned $1,000 Initiative Scholarships through the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation. Afton Greenwood from Gibraltar High School and Adam Kuehl of Kewaunee High School will be recognized at a luncheon in Green Bay on April 13.

Initiative Scholarships are awarded to students who have demonstrated high level of motivation to achieve, shown strong promise for achieving success in their futures and have overcome significant personal obstacles or adversity.

Gibraltar High School Counselor Chelsea Roberts says Greenwood was nominated because of the motivation she showed after a car accident her sophomore year left her with a crushed pelvis and internal injuries. When she returned home from the hospital, Greenwood refused to fall behind on her schoolwork. With the help of her teachers and an online course, Greenwood completed all of her classes on time.

Kewaunee High School Counselor Steve Meyer says Kuehl comes from a large family and the high school scholarship committee knew he’d have a good chance in earning the Initiative Scholarship.

Greenwood plans to attend Marian University to study Health Care Administration and Kuehl is planning to enroll in the Diesel Tech program at NWTC in Sturgeon Bay.

 

Sturgeon Bay teacher Cliff Wind was also honored by the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation. Read our previous story here.
