The Karl L. King Scholarship Foundation awarded $2,000 in student scholarships.
A $1,000 scholarship named in honor of Karl L. King is given to a student to use at an Iowa college of choice. The 2011 winner of this scholarship is Nick LeWarne, son of Joel and Amy LeWarne, Bev and Loren Fisher of Marshaltown. He plays the alto saxophone and will be a sophomore at the University of Northern Iowa.
Two scholarships of $500 each were awarded to Sarah Scott, aughter of Mike and Shelia Scott of Webster City, on flute and Zach Sjoberg, son of Scott and Shelly Sjoberg of Webster City, on clarinet, who will be sophomores at Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge.
Kaily Jo Macdonald, daughter of Stacey Klein, Lyle and Trisha Macdonald of Gowrie auditioned on timpani and marimba, but was not selected as a finalist this year. She just graduated from Prairie Valley High School in Gowrie.
Danielle Border, daughter of Mark and Shelia Border of Fort Dodge, also auditioned on clarinet and was not a finalist for the $1,000 award this year. Danielle just graduated from Fort Dodge Senior High.
One of the $500 scholarships to Iowa Central Community College is endowed by Dr. Greg Olson in memory of his parents, Everett and Dorothy Olson.
The second $500 scholarship is endowed by Norma Helmich in memory of her son, Steven, a talented high school vocalist who passed away suddenly, days after singing the lead role of Professor Harold Hill in the musical “The Music Man.”
Peggy and the late Tom Dowd are among several who have also generously supported the Karl L. King Memorial Foundation.
