Grace Flynn earns Herb Kohl Student Excellence Scholarship
Grace Flynn

Grace Flynn, a senior at Edgewood High School of the Sacred Heart, is one of the recipients of the 2019 Herb Kohl Student Excellence Scholarship recipient. The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation awards the $10,000 scholarships annually to 100 public high school seniors and 14 private high school seniors in Wisconsin. The award funds are paid directly to the post-secondary institution the recipient attends.

Grace was chosen to receive the award because of exceptional scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and school and community involvement. In addition, the scholarship criteria evaluate applicants’ ability to clearly articulate goals in each of four areas: future educational goals, personal life goals, community/society service goals, and career goals.

Kohl Student Excellence Scholarship recipients receive their awards and are recognized by former US Senator Herb Kohl at a regional luncheon alongside the Student Initiative Scholarship, Teacher Fellowship, and Principal Leadership award recipients. Grace and other awardees from this area will attend the event at Sun Prairie High School on March 24.
