Friends Of the Library Awards Scholarships

If you are a parent of a graduating senior, Wednesday, May 14 at the PAC was the place that you wanted to be. Scholarships totaling $218,550.00 were awarded to 58 students from the Class of 2008. The Friends of the Library participated this year in awarding two scholarships to graduating seniors. Libraries encourage lifelong learning and promote the love of reading. Libraries play an important role in the education of our students. Whether they use it as a study hall, to meet their technology and research needs, or for entertainment, the skills learned will carry the students through high school, post high school and into adulthood. The Friends of the Library offered two scholarships to students who have demonstrated their use of the High School Library, a love of reading and hold a valid Public Library card. We hope that students graduating from Oconto Falls High School will continue to use and support the Public Library in the communities that they choose to reside in. The winners of the scholarships were Ian Bauer and Jordan Cook. Congratulations Seniors.
