Their profiles, in alphabetical order, follow:

Top 10 Elliott Butler, son of Matthew and Susan, Ixonia, will attend Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn., to receive a degree in Elementary Education and Secondary Physical Education. “I would love to coach sports and be involved with them at a high school level,” he says. “I want to impact the kids I teach just like my teachers from grade school and high school.” He has received a $1,000 Service Grant and $2,000 Messenger Scholarship from MLC.

For his years at Lakeside, he was on National Honors Society for two years, Student Council for four, and served on the student newspaper. Elliott played basketball for two years and baseball and football for four years, a captain his senior year.

Elliott represented Lakeside at Badger Boys State and the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. He traveled with mission trip program Operation GO to Alaska, Boise, and Louisville. He has served as an usher at his home church, St. Matthew, Oconomowoc, for three years and wants “to remain close to my church and faith.”

He appreciates his time at LLHS. “I loved the bonds I was able to create with all of my teachers. The friendships I made will be something I will never forget. The memories I left on all the athletic fields here will stick with me forever,” Elliott says. “Lakeside is such a tightly-knit family and was truly a great blessing.”

Top 10 Elizabeth Cichanofsky, daughter of Mike and Shelly, Watertown, will spend the next six years “at Carroll University to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy,” she says. “I want to be able to use my God-given talents to help others recover and do things they may not have been able to do for a long time.”

As an incoming freshman, she has already been accepted into Carroll’s Honors Program as well as its Graduate School. Carroll University has awarded her the Carroll Trustee Scholarship at $19,000 per year, renewable all 4 years, and the Donor Sponsored Grant for $2,100.

Elizabeth served as the editor-in-chief of the Warrior Times Weekly, which received a Scholastic 1st place and a merit for the “Most Outstanding High School Newspaper.” She also participated in National Honor Society, Math Team, and managed the JV softball team her freshman year.

“I really enjoyed the last four years here at Lakeside. I liked that I was surrounded by Christian teachers and peers,” she says. “I like the fact that our class is close and we are all family and treat each others as brothers and sisters.”

She is active at her home church, St. Luke, Watertown, in its teen group, church band, and altar guild. She also volunteers at Trinity-St. Luke’s grade school.

Top 10 Joshua Higgins, son of Charles and Julie, Watertown, is a member of St. Mark, Watertown, where he ushers, reads the Gospel during the service, and volunteers at church events. At Lakeside he participated in soccer, basketball, golf, baseball, and National Honor Society.

“I enjoyed all of the people I have met and all the friends I have made,” he says. “I really enjoyed attending and playing in a lot of sporting events. The environment during these activities and the memories that I have made either watching or playing with my friends is something that I will never forget and will cherish forever.”

Josh will head to Martin Luther College in the fall to pursue a degree in education. “I want to have a Christian family and I want to teach my classes in a fun way and still have my students learn what they are supposed to,” he says. He received a renewable Messenger Scholarship for $2,000. Though not attending, he also received a UW–La Crosse Soaring Eagle Scholarship for $2,000 and the Wisconsin Lutheran College Presidential Scholarship for $15,000, General Endowed Scholarship Fund for $1,500, and Partners in Christian Education Scholarship for $2,000.

Top 10 Tina Kehl, daughter of Paul and Kristine, Waterloo, will attend Martin Luther College for a degree in Elementary Education. “I would love to make an impact on the next generation and teach children in the setting of God’s Word,” she says. “I also hope to marry a Christian man and raise a family someday.”

While at LLHS, she participated in Summer Marching Band, Warrior Band, A Cappella Choir, Intramurals, Piano, Jazz Band, and Forensics. Tina also received various WSMA instrumental medals, and 3 golds and 1 silver medal at WHSFA State Forensics Meets.

She also served on the Warrior Times Weekly staff and in National Honor Society. “I was involved in my community through the Astico Perseverance 4-H Club, of which I have been a member for 10 years,” she says. Through 4-H, she received the Top Secretary Book for Dodge County.

At her church, Zion, Columbus, Tina assisted with Vacation Bible School and Christmas for Kids, and performed in vocal and instrumental ensembles for church services. “The wonderful education that I received at Lakeside was unlike any other and the Christian environment that I experienced here was truly uplifting,” she says. “I made amazing memories and sincere relationships that I will always carry with me.”

Top 10 Ian Lindloff, son of David and Phyllis, Lake Mills, will attend UW–Platteville to study Civil Engineering. After graduation, he hopes to “get a job in my intended field, eventually move to the East Coast and travel throughout Europe.” He received the Academic Achievement Scholarship from Milwaukee School of Engineering for $12,000.

While at Lakeside, he received three academic letters and the National Merit Scholarship Letter of Commendation. He participated in basketball for one year, track for two, and soccer for four. A member of St. Paul, Lake Mills, he has served as an usher for three years.

“My two favorite things about Lakeside are the friendships and the atmosphere,” he says. “I formed some really strong bonds with people in the span of just four years, and was able to live and grow in a school community centered around God.”

Top 10 Noah Miller, son of Dan and Jodi, Whitewater, will attend UW–Madison to either earn his Ph.D. in Psychology or an MBA. While there, he is planning to study abroad in South America. “Being a part of National Honor Society greatly increased the volunteer activities which were available to me,” he says. He volunteered at Twice is Nice for four years and helped with Grand Event—Lakeside’s annual fundraiser. He ushers at his church, St. John, Whitewater, and helps with after-service meals almost every month.

As a member of the Warrior football team, he was a team captain and also won second-team All-Conference honors.

“Lakeside has been a huge part of my life, and a solid stepping stone for the rest of it. Throughout my years in high school, I learned many things, but the most important were about Christ. I grew in my faith every day,” he says. “The relationships I have made will last a lifetime and eternity.”

Top 10 Katelyn Richter, daughter of Pete and Denise, Watertown, a member at St. Luke, participated in National Honor Society, Student Council, Badger Girls State, volleyball, and softball.

“It’s so much fun having friends from so many different cities and towns. You always have a place to stay if your game that night is an hour away from home and you don’t want to drive home!” Katelyn says. “I also enjoyed the fact that our school is small enough that you know virtually everyone by name and there’s always a smiling face to greet you when you get to school, whether a teacher or another student.”

In the fall, she will attend Madison College to study business or business management and then transfer to UW-Whitewater. Katelyn has earned the Grand Prix bowling scholarship by participating in league bowling for years.

Her goal is to “get married, have a family, and enjoy my job so much that I never have to work a day of my life.”

Salutatorian Danielle Schilling, daughter of Mike and Robin, Watertown, will attend UW–River Falls for a degree in Animal Science and pursue a career in the animal industry. “I want to maintain my academic success in college and be a lifelong learner,” she says.

From UW-River Falls, she received the outstanding academic achievement award for $4,000 and the Falcon Scholars Scholarship for $6,000. She also received the Wisconsin Academic Excellence Scholarship for $2,250 per year.

A member of St. John, Juneau, Danielle participated in historical reenacting, city parades, and Share the Hope fundraising for firefighters, in her community. At LLHS, she participated in Teens for Christ, National Honor Society, Academic Bowl, and A Cappella choir. She served as the wrestling manager and participated in track, where she recently broke the school record in pole vault at 11’3. Danielle received academic high honors for all four years and received the National German Exam distinguished achievement.

“One of my favorite things about Lakeside is the incorporation of God’s Word in every class and activity. This provides the perfect environment to study and learn about our faith. This common background also lays the foundation for lifelong friendships,” Danielle says. “All of the teachers are committed to teaching the Word of God in a Christ-like manner. Lakeside prepares students for a life of ministry in a world of misery due to sin, and this is super important for young Christians.”

Valedictorian Caleb Strutz, son of Nathan and Elizabeth, Verona, is a member at Resurrection. He will head to Martin Luther College to receive a Bachelor of Arts in pre-seminary studies. Afterward he will attend Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to become a pastor in the WELS.

At Lakeside, Caleb participated in Forensics, Drama, Math Meet, Academic Bowl, and STEM Club. He is a two-time Forensics state gold medalist.

“I liked how tight-knit everything is. The school is close and groups of friends are closer,” he says. “Activities were always a blast to participate in.”

Top 10 Kyle Wiessinger, son of Randy and Lorie, DeForest, will head to UW–Madison for a business degree. “I hope to have an enjoyable experience throughout college while still maintaining a strong focus on academics,” he says. He received scholarships to Marquette University, the Père Marquette Award and the College of Business Administration Scholarship. He also received the Presidential Scholarship and Out-of-State Scholarship to Bradley University.

At Lakeside, Kyle participated in football, National Honors Society, Teens for Christ, and the Math Team. “I liked the Christian atmosphere and learning about my Savior daily. I also enjoyed the friendships I have made,” he says.

I have also learned life can be difficult at times, so it’s important to have strong friendships, connections with teachers, and a strong love with family to make it through and make something good out of anything. Life is definitely what you make it. When there is a chance to crack a joke or make a situation lighter, I am all over it. I enjoy laughter and happiness and hope to keep my life full of good times and fun family and friends.”

“The Kohl Initiative Scholarship is truly an honor for David and other recipients. Not only does it recognize the challenges they have overcome, but it allows a wider audience to celebrate their hard work that might otherwise go unnoticed,” says Rosenau.

The Herb Kohl Initiative Scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated a high level of motivation, have shown strong promise for achieving success in college and beyond, and have overcome significant personal obstacles or adversity. Students are nominated by their respective schools, and the Kohl Foundation selects winners from all nominees. Wilson plans to attend Wisconsin Lutheran College and pursue a Business degree.

The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has been recognizing educational excellence annually since 1990 by providing scholarships to graduating high school students throughout Wisconsin. Beginning this year, scholarships were increased from the previous $3,000 per scholar to $5,000.  Since it was established in 1990, the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has awarded $10.2 million to Wisconsin students, teachers and schools.
