The Konold family believes that the field of education is a very worthy career to pursue and is often underappreciated. They are thankful for the role educators have played in their lives both at the primary and secondary level. They understand that teachers are special people committed to sharing their love of knowledge as well as the endless hours of out-of-classroom preparation and planning. The Konold family hopes the granting of this scholarship will allow students to experience the student teaching environment without the worry of the added expenses.
The Konold's established this scholarship in December 2010, in honor of their daughter.
|Thank You||Recipient must write a letter of thanks to Kevin and Lori Konold and deliver it to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation Office.|
