JA Scholarship Winners

A few months back we asked for your help in spreading the word about the scholarships that JA of Lincoln offers annually to local high school students, and we thought you’d be interested in the results!

We received a lot of great applications from some very impressive students (and all JA alumni!), but four stood out from the rest – lots of community involvement, sky high GPAs (the lowest among them was a 3.95!), ambitions plans for the future, and great essays demonstrating a real understanding of the JA message. The four winners joined the JA of Lincoln Board of Directors for lunch and an awards presentation during the April meeting.

Congratulations to:

Matthew Peppmuller
Lincoln Northeast High School
Dan Remigio Scholarship $1,000

Jessica Gehr
Lincoln Southeast High School
Ken Carlson Scholarship $1,000

Jigme Rinchen
Lincoln Southwest High School
Pepsi-Cola Scholarship $750

Scott Luedtke
Lincoln Southwest High School
John Ballew Memorial Scholarship $500

We want to offer our thanks and best wishes to all the wonderful students who applied. As always, hearing from so many talented, motivated young people who have such big plans and dreams makes us very optimistic about Lincoln’s future. May you all find happiness and success!
