NOTE: Thanks to Lakeland University for sharing info for this story!
Plymouth High School senior Tegan Schneider is one of four Lakeland University Sheboygan County Scholars for 2017.
“Thanks to all who supported me,” she said during a signing ceremony April 10 attended by her parents, grandparents, teachers and many friends. “You guys shaped who I am today.”
The Sheboygan County Scholars program is a Lakeland University initiative, with support from the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce and leading businesses and philanthropists. The goal of the program is to keep the area's most promising young people at home and prepare them to assume leadership positions within the community and region.
Up to four Sheboygan County Scholars are chosen each year. These recipients meet rigorous academic standards, complete an application process and interview with an LU committee. Upon acceptance into the program, scholars will be expected to excel academically, be engaged in campus life and the Sheboygan community through volunteer opportunities, and maintain the highest ethical standards.
At PHS, Tegan participates in Student Council, National Honor Society, FBLA, jazz band, German band and concert band, and acted in the fall play, and did a service-based excursion to Ecuador. She plans to major in biology and pursue a pre-medicine track at Lakeland. After completing her undergraduate work she expects to attend a two-year physician's assistant program. Her career goal is to become a physician's assistant specializing in neurology.
Others chosen from among 18 finalists to receive 2017 scholarships are Dominique Lee and Eeshi Vue of Sheboygan North and Alyson Piper of Sheboygan South. They will join seven current LU Sheboygan County Scholars – including 2016 PHS grad Brandon Herrin.
