Rufus King High School Fund

The most recent recipient of the Rufus King High School Fund Scholarship is Christopher Robers. Read comments from Christopher below.

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

Pursuing a major I am excited about and stepping in to compete in a rigorous program. Also, the freedom and responsibility that comes with a college education that allows me to grow as a person and learn about the world.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love sports, especially basketball. I am fiercely competitive and find joy in pushing my body to its limits and the comradery that is born from teamwork. I also enjoy cooking, I have been doing it since I could see over the kitchen counter. I am currently working as a sous chef in my parent's restaurant, a new venture for them now that my brother and I are going off to college. In addition I enjoy traveling and outdoor adventure type stuff. I have been going camping, fishing, mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing and traveling the world since I can remember.

Christopher's Thank You Note

Thank you so much for this scholarship. I am paying for my education by myself for the most part and every dollar counts. I hope to carry on the legacy of Rufus King in a positive light in all of my endeavors and make the most of my college experience, learning all that I can in the short time I have.
