Congratulations to Bishop Luers High School seniors Joseph Crouch and Simon May. These two members of the Class of 2008 are this year’s recipients of the Wedertz Scholarship.

Mrs. Jill Rinne, former English teacher at Bishop Luers High School, was a friend of Mr. Wedertz. Before his death, Mr. Wedertz wanted to give back to the community. He was a lover of science and of learning. Bishop Luers was chosen as his vehicle for giving.

Each year one or two seniors are chosen to have their senior year of tuition at Bishop Luers paid. Qualifications include a written essay stating why science is important in the life of the candidate. Information on the candidate’s family is also required. The winner of this award must have taken four years of science in high school.

Mrs. Rinne peruses the applicants and selects the winners.

Winner Joseph Crouch is the son of Randall and Julie Crouch. At Bishop Luers Joe is involved in Show Choir, Drama productions, Baseball, Soccer, and Peer Ministry.

He is a member of the Academic Bowl, Student Council, Key Club, Retreat Team, National Honor Society, Jazz Ensemble, and the Men’s Music group. Joe is unsure where he will attend college but he plans on majoring in math.

Winner Simon May is the son of Thomas and Diane May. At Bishop Luers Simon is involved in Show Choir, Drama productions, Mass Choir, Jazz Ensemble and the Men’s Music Group. Simon plans on attending Purdue and majoring in engineering.
