THS’s Caleb Dickens awarded Herb Kohl Educational Foundation scholarship

For the Tomahawk Leader

TOMAHAWK – A Tomahawk High School (THS) student is among the recipients of a scholarship offered by the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation.

Caleb Dickens was awarded the Foundation’s Student Initiative Scholarship.

The Foundation annually awards $10,000.00 Initiative Scholarships to 100 graduating high school students in public and private schools throughout Wisconsin.

“Each year, 100 different high schools are designated to award an Initiative Scholarship,” the Foundation’s website says. “The selection of schools is based on a multi-year rotation cycle, which allows every high school in Wisconsin to receive an Initiative Scholarship in rotation.”

Each designated school chooses its recipient through an internal selection and application process, and the $10,000.00 scholarships are awarded in the spring.

The Foundation said the intent of the Initiative Scholarship is to “recognize students who put forth extraordinary effort to do their best in the classroom and have overcome significant obstacles or adversity, but whose class rank or other extenuating circumstances likely make them ineligible for academic scholarships.”

Dickens joins students from Merrill, Stratford, Sun Prairie and Weston in receiving the Student Initiative Scholarship.
