2018 Wayzata Memorial Education Foundation
Scholarship Winners!
 
One of the favorite meetings of the year is when the best and brightest from Wayzata High School come and join us for lunch.  This year the WMEF was able to award 16 $1,000 scholarships.  This is not possible without the donations and fund raising that Wayzata Rotary does.  Members - THANK YOU!
 
This year while munching on tacos, we got to know each student, where they are planning on going to school, and each shared what they were most proud of.  This year's Q&A with the students was fantastic!  This group of scholars was very articulate, engaged with members in answering questions, and were very open and honest with their observations.  
 
Thank you Scott Gengler for hosting the luncheon and to the WMEF committee membes, Bruce Lea, Tom Vettel, and Chris Pierson for attending and participating in the Award Program on May 14.  You earned an attendance credit!
