Schrock Scholarship seeking applicants
JANESVILLE The Joseph B. Schrock Memorial Scholarship, a component of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin Inc., is being offered to graduating seniors or previous graduates from Big Foot and/or Elkhorn high schools.
Dr. Schrock was a resident of Walworth County for more than 40 years. He practiced in Sharon for the first 20 years of his medical practice. His two sons attended and graduated from Big Foot High School in Walworth. The second 20 years were spent in Elkhorn.
He was devoted to medicine and realized that a team of dedicated individuals well trained in various disciplines deliver the best health care. Therefore, this scholarship is available to students entering a variety of health-care related fields.
Schrock also loved music. At one point in his life, he seriously considered pursuing music as a career. He was an accomplished flutist and piccolo player. He directed his church choir and the County Gentlemen Barbershop Chorus. Therefore, consideration may be available to a student considering music as a career.
Students should be in top 50 percent of their class ranking. Preference may be given for financial need, but this is not a restriction.
High school seniors should contact their guidance counselor for an application. An application for previous graduates can be found at www.cfsw.org.
