Suanders Sebold scholarship winner
Incoming freshman student Madalyn Sawdey of Medford has received the Kathrin M. “Kitty” Saunders Sebold Scholarship to attend UWSP this fall.
The $1,500 award, given by D. David (Dewey) Sebold, ’68, Medford, in memory of his late wife, Kitty Saunders Sebold, ’68, is given to a high achieving student from Medford Senior High School based on their academic merit and leadership ability.
“I will be studying Clinical Laboratory Science,” Sawdey says. “I’ve always liked the sciences and I’d like to work in the medical field.” She intends to eventually work in a hospital laboratory.
Sawdey adds that she is “so thankful” for the Sebold support. “When I was chosen to receive the award, I’ll be honest, I was struggling for money. It was very nice to learn I’d received this scholarship. I am very thankful.”
Sebold is a former president and CEO of Tombstone Pizza. Kitty was a social worker.
Seramur Family Foundation makes additional donation
Students in business and economics will have more opportunities for financial assistance thanks to a donation from the Seramur Family Foundation.
The foundation gave an additional $100,000 to the already established John C. Seramur Economics and Business Scholarship, which has financially impacted scores of students since 1978.
John C. Seramur, retired president of the former First Financial Savings and Loan Association (now known as Associated Bank), established the scholarship along with the Seramur Family Foundation to recognize high scholastic achievement and potential of economics, business administration and managerial accounting students at UWSP.
