Student Scholarship Awarded

Faith, Family and Friends - OHS Senior Caleb Deering received the Rotary Scholarship Monday at the Oconomowoc Club’s regular noon Monday meeting at Oconomowoc Parks and Rec. OHS counselor Scott Bakkum said the student shows “resilience, humbleness, character, perseverance and endurance.” Deering has reached out to his “faith, family and friends” for their “unbending support”. Working “diligently toward his academic goals,” Deering will enroll at UW-Green Bay in human biology, to become an orthopedic physician. “We know through seeing Caleb, adversity does not build character, it reveals it.” Deering commended Rotarians for helping their community. “I want to be like you, helping my community too.”  Rotary honors students throughout the year, providing funding for continuing education.
