Douglas Grace ’20 Named Herb Kohl Excellence Scholar
Senior Douglas Grace was named a 2020 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Excellence Scholar, one of 193 graduating high school students in Wisconsin to receive a $10,000 scholarship from the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation.
Excellence Scholarship recipients have demonstrated excellence in the academic arena and high motivation to achieve, have displayed a broad range of activity and leadership outside the academic setting, and have shown strong promise for succeeding in college and beyond.
The Kohl Foundation Scholarship and Fellowship program was established by Herb Kohl, philanthropist and businessman, in 1990. Currently in its 30th year of recognizing educational excellence, the foundation has awarded $20.9 million to Wisconsin educators, principals, students and schools. “Education is the key to the future of Wisconsin and our nation,” Kohl said. “I am very proud of the accomplishments of these students, teachers, and principals and look forward to the great contributions they will make in the future.”
