Tyler Brewer of Verona, son of Ken and Kris Brewer, is the winner of the sixth annual $250 Fred Scherz Sr. Memorial Scholarship for Volunteer Community Service, said Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., a Verona town councilman.
Brewer has volunteered in the Adopt-A-Highway Program along Route 31. He also helped clean up along Townline Road and Tilden Hill Road. Via the VVS Interact Club, he has raked leaves, rang the Salvation Army bell, and sang Christmas carols as well.
Scherz said “it’s obvious Tyler cares about not only the Verona community, but the surrounding areas as well, as his volunteerism has extended beyond the Town of Verona....Besides being a hard worker with all his volunteerism, he also excelled in the classroom as he was named VVS Class of 2015 valedictorian. I congratulate Tyler for not only winning the scholarship, but for also setting a great example for others to follow. On a personal note, I know my Dad would’ve been impressed with Mr. Brewer’s ongoing volunteer efforts!”
