Katherine Guld, daughter of John and Nicole of Lake Mills, was awarded a Lake Mills Rotary Scholarship at the recent Academic Awards Night at Lakeside Lutheran High School. The $1000.00 award was presented to Guld by Ann Lee, president of the Lake Mills Rotary Club.
Guld was awarded the scholarship based on her academic success as well as character, leadership, and participation during her high school years, her essay on the value of Rotary in the community, and her future plans regarding community service. She plans to attend Wisconsin Lutheran College, Milwaukee, to pursue a career in biology/osteopathic medicine.
According to Rotary International, Rotary Clubs are committed to service, fellowship, diversity, integrity, and leadership. Supporting education is one of the six top priorities of Rotary, along with promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, and growing local economies. The scholarships are funded primarily through the annual Scholarship Brunch offered to the public each February.
