Applications underway for Scherz Memorial Scholarship


VERONA — Verona Town Board member Fred “Fritz” Scherz has announced the eighth annual Fred Scherz Sr. Memorial Scholarship for Volunteer Community Service.

The $250 scholarship will be awarded to a town resident scheduled to graduate from a public, private or home school by June 30. The recipient will have lived in Verona since Dec. 1 and will have been engaged in community service or created a community project.

“I did the inaugural scholarship back in the spring of 2010 as a way to honor my dad’s memory,” Scherz said. “My dad, Fred Scherz Sr., truly believed in giving back to his community, and took pride in helping many people.”

Kierstyn Kahler received the scholarship last year.

Scholarship rules and an application are available at or call (315) 363-3509. Application deadline is May 13.
