VERONA, WI — The Opportunity 34 Foundation is thrilled to confirm that their first scholarship recipients have been selected. The Verona Area High School Scholarship Committee worked diligently on selecting 2 winners from an extremely strong application pool.
The $5,000 Opportunity 34 scholarship winners will be revealed by foundation representatives at the VAHS Senior Awards Night on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at the high school’s Performing Arts Center.
“The scholarships that are being awarded would not be possible without the generous donations from you, our scholarship donors,” said Andrea Bonaparte, school social worker at Verona High School.
Scholarships from the Opportunity 34 Foundation are intended to give former basketball players a chance at furthering their education beyond high school through both financial assistance and mentoring. It is in former Verona basketball player Will Kellerman’s memory that we celebrate the selection of Opportunity 34’s inaugural scholarship recipients.
