Proud students gathered with their parents, family, school faculty and administrators to be recognized and receive well-deserved post-secondary scholarships and awards. GCSF was privileged to distribute 87 awards totaling $115,700. Additional scholastic and athletic scholarships ranging from several hundred to thousands of dollars per student were also awarded by institutions of higher education, area businesses, foundations, local unions and groups representing military affiliations.
Recognizing the important role teachers have in developing students to become successful in their post-secondary pursuits, the GCSF awarded three $500 Teacher Grant Awards. Dr. Jakusz, a GCSF Board Member and representative from Dental Professionals—GCSF Premier Corporate Sponsor—recognized Teacher Grant award recipients. Jon Stachowiak and Keith Kohls of Germantown High School and Jeff Thielke of Kennedy Middle were selected to receive a GCSF grant from several applicants who submitted proposals in March. The GCSF strives to select projects that enrich classroom curriculum, impact a large number of students and provide funding for a project that would otherwise not be included in the school district budget.

High School Students
GCSF created the Scholarship Planner to help high school students prepare for scholarship applications. All incoming High School Freshman will receive a Scholarship Planner with their registration materials. Finding ways to pay for higher education can be a daunting task. GCSF hopes to simplify the process of completing general scholarship applications and GCSF Scholarship applications by providing students with a planner designed to record academics, in and out of school activities, co-op participation, volunteerism, and employment history. Printing of the Scholarship Planners was funded by Dental Professionals. Copies of the planner are available in the Germantown High School Guidance office, at Dental Professionals and on this Web site.
