Senior Michaela Bradham was awarded the 2019 Initiative Scholarship on April 13, 2019, presented by the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation. To date, the foundation has awarded $17.8 million to Wisconsin students, teachers, principals and their schools.
The $10,000 Initiative Scholarship is given to 100 different high schools each year, based on a multi-year rotation cycle. Each school picks its recipient, who has overcome significant obstacles or adversity, demonstrated a high level of motivation, and has shown strong promise for achieving success in college and beyond, but has not yet received other academic-based scholarships.
Michaela is planning on attending Coe College in Cedar Rapids this fall. Congratulations, Michaela!
