2017 Katie Lunn “Keep the Smile Alive” Fort Dodge High School Scholarship

2017 Finalists

2017 Finalists

This year’s dinner and awards ceremony was held on Wednesday May 10th, 2017 at the Willow Ridge Restaurant and Golf Course. This year’s finalists were Brennan DeCoursey, Mitchell Emery, Anna Taylor, Brady Read, Jason Halverson, Justin Schild, Ryan Wagner, Lehr Thorson, Jonathan Bowser and Anna Bruen. We would like to congratulate all of the finalists.

Like in past years this is a peer nominated scholarship. Students write an essay nominating another student explaining how the nominee emulates the social character that Katie Lunn displayed. A group of Senior High teachers that knew Katie review all essays and score them to determine the 10 finalists (5 nominators and the 5 nominees) as well as the winning duo.

The finalist and their families are invited to the scholarship dinner. After dinner a video tribute of Katie is shown and then each nominator gets up and reads their nomination essay and afterwards the winner is announced.

This year’s winners were Anna Taylor (nominator) and Brady Read (nominee). Congratulations Anna and Brady for winning the 2017 Katie Lunn “Keep the Smile Alive” Scholarships.
