Heiser Automotive Group is proud to support and recognize the many talented young adults in our community through the Preps Plus program.The Preps Plus Scholarshipallows us to reward students for their involvement, academics or “Anything is Possible” attitude that helped them overcome a tough situation.
This year’s Preps Plus Scholarship winners are August Jensen of Racine and Hannah Trafton of Milwaukee.Each student submitted an application and two letters of recommendation to our selection committee. The top candidates (1 male and 1 female) will receive $1,000 from Heiser to help them continue their education.
August Jensen graduated at just 16 years old from Walden High School in Racine, at the top of his class. He was active in the school’s “United States Academic Decathlon” team, which took 1st place the state competition this year. He also volunteered for several organizations, helping the Alzheimer’s Association, Saint Joseph’s Hospital, and a local food shelter.But for August, who is deaf, the key to success was “an excellent balance between work and play”. He is excited to be heading to the University of Wisconsin- Madison this fall.
Hannah Trafton also excelled in the classroom while attending Dominican High School. She also kept busy playing on the softball team, working the stage crew, volunteering for campus ministry and as a member of the National Arts Honor Society.Hannah feels art “helps a person express all the feeling he or she cannot put into words”.It particularly helped her deal with the challenges of a Crohn’s Disease diagnosis at a young age.She will be attending Cardinal Stritch University this fall.
We are proud of August and Hannah’s accomplishments in school and their involvement in their communities. They’ve proven through their dedication and commitment that “Anything is Possible”.Heiser Automotive Group wishes them the best in their future endeavors and pursuit of dreams.
