Ballweg Scholarship Application Looming

Once again this year State Representative Joan Ballweg of Markesan is sponsoring a scholarship program for high school seniors who will be attending a 2-year technical college or a college or university for a 4-year degree. Ballweg says students need at least a 3.0 average on a 4.0 point scale to be eligible and must have lived in the 41st State Assembly District during this school year.  She says the scholarship is just as much about the leadership role a student took in their community. The deadline for applications is April 15th. Packets are available at area high school guidance offices or you can call her office toll free at 1-888-534-0041 to get one.
