I would like to offer my sincerest thanks for selecting me to be a recipient of the Fennimore High School Community Scholarship. Your donation of $1000 is generous and greatly appreciated. I am currently a senior at Fennimore High School and will graduate in May. I will be attending the University of Wisconsin – Platteville for a major in Animal Science this coming fall. I plan on attending veterinary school after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree. Your contribution to my education will help me achieve my goal. My education has always been important to me and by receiving this scholarship I will be able to be more successful in my studies. As a result, I will be a good representative for the Fennimore High School Community Scholarship. With your help, one day I will be able to positively impact the community as you have.

Jeffrey Needham

What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

At first I didn't want to leave the comfort of high school, but now I'm excited to start a new journey in my life pursuing a civil engineering degree at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. It has always been a dream of mine to work with and around around heavy machinery and use mathematics, so i think I found my path of civil engineering to be the right choice. I'm also excited to be able to be on my own and pick the classes that interest me, not the ones that are required at high school. I have had many family members attend the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and I am excited to be the next one in my family to take this step.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My hobbies would involve anything outdoors or sports related. I was on the Fennimore football team for four years, as well as baseball and basketball for four years as well. Sports teach you many lessons throughout the years, which I will carry with me forever. I also love the outdoors. If it involves animals or water, I'm in! I love to be on the river fishing or tubing and I love to hunt. The best thing about these hobbies is no matter which one I choose to do that day, I know I will have a blast, relax, and it will also relieve any stress in my life.

Jeffrey's Thank You Note

Thank you for selecting me to receive the Fennimore Community Scholarship. This will help out greatly as I am facing a large tuition bill over the next four years and I am paying for college myself. Thanks again for helping me out by awarding me this scholarship and starting me off in the right step as I pursue a degree in civil engineering.

Thank you for your scholarship. It will help me pay for my future education that I am looking forward to experiencing.
