Each year, the Vernon County Cooperative Association (VCCA) awards $500 scholarships for area high school seniors to continue their studies at a two- or four-year institution of higher education. Applicant’s parents or guardians must be members of, or employed by, a VCCA Member (see list*).
With the uncertainty of the past year, the Association wanted to go out of its way to support students seeking to continue their education beyond high school. They aimed to make three $500 scholarships available. With the generous donation of an extra $500 by VCCA Member, Compeer Financial, they were able to award four $500 scholarships in 2021.
The 2021 VCCA $500 Scholarships Recipients are:
• Grace Bendel – Westby H.S.
• Katrina Koppa – Viroqua H.S.
• Annie Schreier – Cashton H.S.
• Audrey Wirts – La Farge H.S
Please join VCCA in congratulating these four students and wish them the best as they continue their studies!
