NEW!!!!  WILMA (VECH) PELLIKAAN SCHOLARSHIP

It was with great pride I decided to establish this scholarship in my Mother's memory. She was one of many in her family (Vech/Dvorak) to have attended and graduated there, however, as I recall, her fondest memories were attending a small rural schoolhouse in the country; probably because on some days she would be allowed to ride her horse to school, and too, in a one room schoolhouse, there was always the opportunity to advance in that learning environment, as she did and graduated from Verdigre at a young age.  Applications are due to the VHS school counselor.
