2008 Scholarship Winners

The scholarship committee of the World Championship Musky Classic recently awarded a $4,000 scholarship to two Lakeland Union High School seniors.  The scholarships are given each year to North Lakeland area students who will be attending an institution of higher learning.  The purpose of this scholarship is to honor Ben Bendrick, a conservation warden who dedicated his life to the preservation of the natural resources of the state of Wisconsin. His efforts, on behalf of all of the people of the North Lakeland area, serve as an inspiration and a model, which the recipients of this award may emulate while building their own productive lives.

Two very deserving candidates received the award this year.  Those students are Lotus Norton-Wisla and Rebecca Fehlandt.

Lotus Norton-Wisla, from Presque Isle, has volunteered at the Irma Stein Memorial Library for years.  Lotus plans to attend Nicolet Area Technical College before transferring to UW-Madison where she plans to complete a degree in Education.  She would further like to attend graduate school in Library and Information Sciences.

Rebecca Fehlandt is from Boulder Junction and plans to attend the University of Minnesota-Duluth in the fall, majoring in Marketing.  Rebecca has volunteered extensively in her school and community, and views this scholarship as one more way in which she will be able to center her efforts around giving back to others. 

The Bendrick scholarship is administered by the World Championship Musky Classic, a not-for-profit corporation, and is funded partially from entry fees, contributions and magazine revenues.  Over the years, many organizations have donated thousands of dollars to help North Lakeland area students attend the schools of their choice.  For more information on the World Championship Musky Classic or the Ben Bendrick Scholarship, please contact Beth Kebl at: (715) 543-2657.
