Dakota High School Fund
The most recent recipient of the Dakota High School Fund Scholarship is Steven Regez. Read comments from Steven below.
What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?
I am most excited about being able to take classes with subjects that I have never been able to take at our small school in Dakota. I will love being able to branch out and learn new things and subjects I want to know about, and also build on the education I received from Dakota High School.
What interests and/or hobbies do you have?
My favorite hobby would be fishing with my father because it’s very relaxing and it also gives me a great chance to make memories that my father and I will always be able to cherish. Also, I have a big passion for studying and collecting relics from World War II and I hope to continue this throughout college by taking some history classes to further my knowledge.
Steven's Thank You Note
I would just like to thank the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation for making this scholarship happen. Paying for college by myself will be a bit of a financial burden that I will have to manage throughout my life. This scholarship is a bit of that off of my shoulders, which really helps. I will keep applying for scholarships and hopefully try to minimize the burden. Thank you again for choosing me to receive this scholarship! I look forward to getting a good education and joining the work world.
