3/16/17 – It’s been more than four years since Herb Kohl left the U-S Senate, but his educational foundation still gives millions each year to deserving school achievers throughout Wisconsin. The foundation Wednesday announced the winners of five-thousand dollar scholarships for 207 graduating seniors — plus awards of three-thousand each for one-hundred teachers, 16 principals, and their schools. The recipients will be honored at five regional banquets next month in Greendale, Green Bay, Middleton, Eau Claire and Waupun. Kohl started the scholarship and fellowship program in 1990, two years after he was elected to the Senate where he went on to serve for 24 years. His foundation has awarded a total of 11-point-five-million dollars to outstanding educators.
