HPS Foundation "Extends the Horizon of Opportunity" for HPS Graduates!

Picturing Success

The Hastings Public Schools Foundation Board of Directors is extremely proud of our 4-year scholarships and the students who receive this support over a four-year period. Sharing their progress with you, our readers, is one way that we can honor these scholars, share their successes, and provide examples of why the HPS Foundation scholarship program is so important. Finally the Foundation believes that this is another way to thank the donors who support our entire scholarship program.

Johnson Family Scholarship 2015

I am currently a junior Athletic Training major at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. I will spend my junior year working with the Cornhusker football team as my athletic training clinical assignment. Lord willing, I plan to pursue a doctorate of physical therapy after graduating from UNL and taking my athletic training certification exam.

Thank you for your continuing support of my education.  This letter is my yearly update for the Ardyce Bohlke Memorial Scholarship.  I am still attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I am beginning my sophomore year.  I am continuing my English major, while also exploring the possibility of a second major or a minor in either Actuarial Science or Political Science.  My cumulative GPA after my first year is 3.930.

Again, thank you so much for this scholarship and for your support of my education.

I graduated this Spring, summa cum laude, with my B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders and a minor in Psychology, from Fort Hays State University. This past year, I had the opportunity to do clinical work at a local preschool in addition to my academic class work. I also represented my university as a captain and member of the Tiger Deb dance team.  I will be attending graduate school this fall, also at FHSU, in pursuit of a master's degree in Speech and Language Pathology.

I want to thank the HPS Foundation for their support, not only financially but also for their continual encouragement and kind words over the past three years. I am so appreciative of this organization and all you have done for me. I'm excited about my academic future and I could not be where I am today without the support I have received from Hastings Public Schools and the Foundation. Thank you again for everything!!

This past school year was very enjoyable for me.  I had the opportunity to serve my choir as student conductor and section leader.  I will continue serving in those positions this school year as well.  This past year I also took one of my favorite classes thus far.  This class focused on Latin American short stories.  It was so fascinating and educational to read short stories, as well as a novel, in Spanish, by famous Latin American authors.  I look forward to taking the final Spanish class of my undergraduate career this following semester.

This will be my final year of classes before I begin my student teaching, which I am greatly looking forward to.  Your support throughout my education has meant so much to me!  Thankyou again for investing in me and my education.
