The Fort Atkinson Community Foundation is pleased to present a $2,500 Ardell Wiederhoeft Legacy Scholarship to Almira Ajdini, a 2020 graduate of Fort Atkinson High School, for the upcoming 2020-21 academic year.
The Ardell Wiederhoeft Legacy Scholarship was established at the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation by the friends and colleagues of Ardell Wiederhoeft who wanted to honor him for his long and distinguished service to the School District of Fort Atkinson.
Wiederhoeft began his career with the district in 1968 as a teacher of mathematics and then, in 1980, became the district’s business administrator, a position he held until his retirement in 2008. As a teacher, he helped to advance the opportunities and potential of untold students while as the business administrator, his careful stewardship and steady hand helped to guide the school district through the ups and downs of public-school financing and ensure the financial health of the district.
The Wiederhoeft Legacy Scholarship is available to graduating seniors at Fort Atkinson High School, or a graduate of that school currently enrolled in an undergraduate program, who wish to pursue a post-secondary education leading to a career in business, mathematics, or a related field.
