De Pere's Dwyer Earns Herb Kohl Foundation Excellence Scholarship

De Pere High School senior William Dwyer has been named a 2022 Herb Kohl Foundation Excellence Scholar. The highly competitive program awards $10,000 scholarships to Wisconsin high school seniors who have demonstrated excellence in the academic arena and high motivation to achieve, have displayed a broad range of activity and leadership outside the academic setting, and have shown strong promise for succeeding in college and beyond.
 
In addition, awards of $6,000 are being made to 100 teachers and 17 principals and their schools in the state.
 
The Kohl Foundation award program was established by Herb Kohl, philanthropist and businessman. Since 1990, the foundation has awarded more than $28.3 million to Wisconsin educators, principals, students, and schools. “Education is the key to the future of Wisconsin and our nation,” Kohl said. “I am very proud of the accomplishments of these students, teachers, and principals and look forward to the great contributions they
will make in the future.”
