Tosans win Herb Kohl Foundation honors

March 2, 2011

Several local students and teachers have been named winners of Herb Kohl Foundation Awards.

The $1,000 scholarships were given to 100 teachers and 181 graduating high school students statewide this year.

Herschel Kissinger, a student at Wauwatosa West High School, received an excellence scholarship.

Excellence scholarship recipients demonstrate academic excellence and show a high motivation to achieve, as well as display a wide range of activity and leadership outside of school.

Area fellowship recipients are teachers Mary Christensen of Wauwatosa, Pius XI High School; Marissa Fowler of Wauwatosa, Oak Creek East Middle School; and Karen Weber of Wauwatosa, Highland View School in Greendale.

Fellowship recipients are chosen for their ability to inspire a love of learning in their students and motivate others and for their leadership and service inside and outside the classroom. Each Fellow's school also will receive a $1,000 grant.

Since its inception in 1990, the Herb Kohl Foundation has awarded $7.4 million to teachers, students and schools across the state.

Recipients will be honored at a regional luncheon April 3 at Pius XI High School in Milwaukee.
