Luck School District Scholarship Created for Teacher Recognition
In partnership with the Luck Country Inn, the Luck School District is pleased to continue the "Lucky to Have You!" recognition program for a second year. Sadia Mohammed, owner of the Luck Country Inn, has graciously donated funds to recognize an outstanding Luck School educator, with the intention that the $500 scholarship will be awarded annually. Students in elementary and high school, parents, and school district residents are all able to nominate teachers.
A strong number of nominations is anticipated since Luck School is fortunate to employ many teachers who are exemplary educators, and the $500 scholarship is a tangible and timely reward for teachers who go beyond their duties and invest their personal time and money to benefit their students.
This scholarship is a catalyst in our community to acknowledge our outstanding K-12 educators. Luck School District welcomes additional donors to step forward to create an additional $500 scholarship to award this spring, whether it’s funded by one person or multiple people.
The online application is clear and concise: name the teacher and the grades and subjects they teach, then explain in 100 words or less why you are nominating the teacher. Please limit one teacher nomination per person. The online application is accessible on both the Luck School District website at www.lucksd.k12.wi.us and Facebook page at Luck Public Schools. Paper applications are available at the District / High School office.
The application deadline is Monday, May 2.A panel will review the nominations and select a recipient who will be named and acknowledged at the graduation ceremony on Sunday, May 22.
Please contact the Luck School District office with any questions at 715-472-2152.
