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

I am very excited about attending UW-Platteville for copious amounts of reasons. The campus tour put a good impression on me with the new facilities, and the small classroom prove to be a good fit, and I am excited to grow and gain knowledge while I attend UW-Platteville. Whether it's the small campus atmosphere or the idea that I am going to get the opportunity to meet new people, I am unsure, but I know that I am excited to begin a new chapter in my life.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Some hobbies include watching and participating in sports. While I attended Verona Area High School I participated in many sports such as Football, Baseball, Track and Field, Basketball and competitive Snowboard Racing. When I am not training or practicing for my sports, I enjoy hiking in the outdoors and hunting with my father and brother. I also enjoy frisbee golfing and snowboarding with my peers.

Kevin's Thank You Note

I truly honored to receive this scholarship. Thank you for the opportunity to exceed in my learning endeavors without the worries of money. I will continue to gain knowledge while I attend UW-Platteville because I believe that anyone can change the world and it is my goal to make an impact in any way possible. This is just the first step for me changing the world. Thank you for the opportunity.

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

I am looking forward to having classes that will be able to focus on my peak interests. Driving towards a degree at UW-Platteville in the Biology filed will allow me to extensively learn about the human body and how it works.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I spend most of my free time outdoors. This has developed into a passion for Ultimate Frisbee and hiking. Along with these hobbies, I enjoy public speaking, working hands on with engines, and studying the muscles of the human body.

Ian's Thank You Note

This scholarship will greatly impact my educational opportunities. I am paying my own way through college, and will work along with my studies to pay for tuition. This scholarship will make the difference in the amount I will be required to work, which will allow me to spend more time studying or in activities such as Frisbee or public speaking.

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

I am excited about getting a quality education while obtaining a degree in my future profession that will help me be successful later in life.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My major interests include playing and watching sports as well as participating in outdoor activities. In high school I played football and threw shot put and discus in track and field. I also played intramural volleyball and basketball. Outdoor activities that I enjoy are camping, hunting and fishing. I have also been active in Boy Scouts since first grade and have had the opportunity to go canoeing down the Wisconsin River, canoeing in the Boundary Waters and hiking in the mountains of New Mexico at Philmont Scout Ranch and much more. Throughout my 12 years in Scouting I worked my way up through the ranks and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in March of this year.

Robert's Thank You Note

I am honored and thankful to have been chosen as a recipient for Verona Area High School Community Scholarship. This scholarship will help offset my tuition as I begin this new chapter in my life at UW Platteville in the fall of 2016. Receiving scholarships such as this acknowledges all the hard work, studying and participating in extracurricular activities that is done throughout high school. It is my hope that this scholarship will be able to be continued for future UW Platteville Pioneers as well.
