A Southern Door graduating senior was named the recipient of the Northern Sky Werner & Sue Krause Scholarship this year. Hunter Malvitz will receive a $2500 scholarship to pursue a degree in theater or music performance.
Selected based on his participation and love for the performing arts and GPA while in high school, Malvitz plans on attending the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire this fall and majoring in Music Education.
The Werner and Sue Krause have been long-time supporters and patrons of performing arts organizations statewide. Sue passed away in 2021, but Werner has been carrying on the tradition and the scholarship opportunity was expanded the last year.
Past recipients are allowed to reapply during their college careers as long as they are pursuing a degree in the performing arts. Lexie Henkel, a junior at Lawrence University majoring in Physics and Vocal Performance and Lia Smith Redman, in her fourth year majoring in Dance and English at UW-Milwaukee received scholarships of $4,000 and $5,000 respectively.
