Hosted by the Germantown Community Scholarship Fund (GCSF), the academic successes and achievements of Germantown area’s high school graduating seniors were celebrated and recognized on May 25, 2016 at Germantown High School. 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 priviledged to distribute 89 awards totaling more than $127,000. 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 and due in part to the inaugural U.S. Bank Run for funds held last year, GCSF was able to increase its Teacher Grants from two to seven grants this year. Teacher grant award winners include: Vicki Niehus/Linda Krohn - 4th grade, Rockfield Elementary School; Jocelyn Ritger - 1st grade, Rockfield Elementary School; Jeanne Kasza - Spanish 1 and 2, Germantown High School; Mark McClellan - 11th and 12th grade Science, Germantown High School; Tracy Miller - Art, K-5 MacArthur Elementary School and K-1 Rockfield Elementary School; Stephanie Milmoe - Physical Education, Germantown High School and Kimberly King - 1st grade, MacArthur Elementary School. Congratulations, teachers! 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.
