PLUM CITY – A Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2014 Excellence Scholarship was presented to Sarah Gilles, senior at Plum City High School at a recognition luncheon hosted by the former U.S. Senator Herb Kohl on March 23.

The Herb Kohl Educational Scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated academic potential, outstanding leadership, citizenship, community service, integrity, and other special talents.

“I certainly admire and respect all of Sarah’s outstanding accomplishments while attending Plum City High School,” said Plum City High School Principal Paul Churchill. “Sarah has demonstrated superb leadership, character, citizenship, and scholarship during high school.”

Each year, the Herb Kohl Foundation awards 100 students throughout Wisconsin with a $1,000 Excellence Scholarship. Since it was established in 1990, the Foundation has awarded $8.6 million to Wisconsin students, teachers and schools.
