Class of 1980 Memorial Scholarship

Ted and his wife, Lois Schmitz. Two smiling, older Caucasian people. Both have white hair and thin, wire-frame glasses. The man is in a white shirt and the woman in a light blue jacket.

The WHS Class of 1980 Memorial Scholarship was started in 2016. While discussing a fitting memorial for recently deceased class member Russ Grindberg, members of the class decided to establish an ongoing fund with the Coyote Foundation to honor Russ and all deceased members of the class of 1980. The fund is to provide an annual scholarship for a graduating WHS senior who exhibits drive, excellence and aptitude, and who is in need of financial assistance in pursuing his or her goals.

In memory of the following members of the Class of 1980:

Donette Bisbee
Penny Haugenoe
Debbie Rudnick
