PHS students earn $1.6 million in scholarships

Posted May 21, 2018

Members of the Plymouth High School Class of 2018 will be receiving more than $1.6 million in scholarships, which were announced during the annual Scholarship Awards Night held May 16 at the school.

The total includes about $72,000 from the Arno A. & Loretta K. Vogt Memorial Scholarship, which will be divided evenly among 80 recipients who have a 3.0 GPA and participated in at least 10 high school extracurricular activities. Each will receive about $900. Arno (1904-1988) and Loretta K. Vogt (1906-1997) were lifelong learners and dedicated educators. They both taught in Sheboygan County schools and lived on Reed Street in Plymouth. Their love for education and the welfare of children has continued through their generous gift to the schools of this area.

Also among the awards were 32 scholarships worth a total of $43,075 administered by the Plymouth Education Foundation.
