Durand High School Fund
The most recent recipient of the Durand High School Fund Scholarship is Quinderra Wilke. Read comments from Quinderra below.
What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?
What am I not excited about starting UW-Platteville should be the question! I am thrilled to become a UW-Platteville Pioneer where I can start a new chapter in my life. The range of student organizations is so outstanding, that it is difficult to choose from. I will most likely be joining a women’s Greek Chapter, several sports clubs, and a departmental organization. While attending UW-Platteville, I plan on receiving the ultimate UW-Platteville Pioneer experience.
What interests and/or hobbies do you have?
My interests are mostly sports and academics. Over the past years I have been involved with eleven years of softball, six years of cheerleading and Student Council, five years of Science Olympiad and Girl Scouts, three years of WYSE (World Wide Youth in Science and Engineering), and two years of National Honors Society. Cheerleading Captain, Student Council President, and Team Captain are the positions I have held. At UW-Platteville, I plan on being involved in sports and developing my leadership skills further.
