This fund was established in Valerie’s memory by her husband Ron. Valerie received awards to pursue a double major in both art and education, culminating with a Masters of Fine Art, the highest degree attainable in her field. She taught at the University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin- La Crosse and Western Technical College. The fund will award a total of three annual scholarships to graduates of Logan, Central and Onalaska High Schools who are seeking a double-major in art plus a practical field like education just like Valerie.
