Although not able to attend the board meeting, Madelyn Dzierzynski is the first place 2019 recipient for the same scholarship and will receive an annual $1,200 sum for four years from the village.

Scholarships still are available

There’s still an opportunity for high school seniors who live in Hennepin or Hennepin Township to receive a scholarship from the village of Hennepin.

The village gives away three one-time scholarships to high school seniors who are going into a vocational career, said Coleman, mentioning no one has applied yet.

If interested, call the village office at (815) 925-7138.
