Hoover is Kohl Scholarship recipient

Racine Lutheran High School senior Sydney Hoover has been selected as a 2021 Herb Kohl Student Initiative Scholarship recipient. She was chosen to receive the $10,000 award because she has shown a high level of motivation to achieve and strong promise for succeeding in college and beyond. Hoover has put forth extraordinary effort to do her best in the classroom and has overcome significant obstacles or adversity. The scholarship may be used for college tuition and fees, room and board, books, supplies, technology, and equipment required for courses of instruction. Hoover, who carries a cumulative 4.0 GPA, is ranked 8th in her class, and she intends to become a physical therapist.
The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation annually awards its $10,000 Initiative Scholarship to 100 graduating high school students in public, religious, and independent schools throughout Wisconsin. The Kohl Foundation Scholarship and Fellowship program was established by Herb Kohl, philanthropist and businessman, in 1990. Since then, the foundation has awarded nearly $25 million to Wisconsin educators, principals, students, and schools. “Education is the key to the future of Wisconsin and our nation. I am very proud of the accomplishments of these students, teachers, and principals and look forward to the great contributions they will make in the future,” Kohl said.
Congratulations, Sydney!
