2014 Education Foundation Scholarships
This year, 2 privately funded scholarships were presented at graduation last Friday evening by Foundation President Todd Kaeb. These scholarship were chosen by criteria established by those that funded the scholarship and then administered by the Cissna Park Education Foundation.
Joel Kaeb was the recipient of the Ristow / Ziegenhorn Scholarship. This scholarship was funded to honor the ancestors of these 2 families who have lived in this community for over a hundred years. It was presented to a student with the ideals of citizenship and character and the hope this student will carry on this legacy into the future.
Dylan Reetz was the recipient of the Illinois Grain & Seed Equipment Scholarship. IGSE is a local business selling and servicing grain and seed handling equipment. Understanding that agriculture plays a large part in the lives of our community, Illinois Grain & Seed’s provided this scholarship to a student who is pursuing a career in agricultural.
