Background

The Kathyrn Pokorny Memorial Scholarship will be presented to two current high school seniors. One of the recipients is to be a member of the Lady Trojans Varsity Soccer Team.  The second student may be chosen from the general pool of applicants.

Our goal is to have this scholarship go to a student with a similar outlook on life to Kate's.

Kate had school spirit. She loved most of her teachers and many students, all with a variety of interests. She was involved in athletics, honor society, yearbook, and orchestra. Kate supported those students who participated in other activities. She was known for her kindness and her smile. She was pleasant, dependable, and honest. She was not always the best student nor the best athlete but she gave each endeavor a strong effort.

Application deadline April 10, 2020.
