Baker and Kincaid receive Weidemann Scholarships

Fort Atkinson Community Foundation

The Fort Atkinson Community Foundation is pleased to present two $3,000 Dr. Sydney H. Weidemann Scholarships to Alivia Baker and Reyne Kincaid, both recent 2020 graduates of Fort Atkinson High School.  These scholarships are for attendance at an accredited public or private college or university and they are one-year awards to be applied to the upcoming 2020-21 academic year.

The Dr. Sydney H. Weidemann Scholarship Fund was established at the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation by Dr. Weidemann who was a prominent dentist and business leader in Fort Atkinson for many years.  He wanted to help provide financial assistance to graduating seniors at Fort Atkinson High School and help make college more affordable.

The criteria for the scholarship include academic achievement, citizenship qualities, and the student’s prospects for success upon graduating from college.  Financial need is also considered.
