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.
Heiser Automotive Group is one of Wisconsin’s longest and most successful established automobile dealership groups. They have new vehicle franchises for Ford, Lincoln Mercury, Toyota, Scion, Chevrolet, and Cadillac. The Heiser organization was co-founded in 1918 by Walter Heiser. The original dwelling, located on 7th and Wisconsin Avenues, sold Model T Fords for $345. People traded in their carriages, wagons, even horses towards the purchase of their first car. Heiser earned a reputation of integrity during the post-war vehicle shortage. Heiser maintained a strict “first come, first served” delivery list, which was not easy to adhere to. When mass production resumed and vehicles were plentiful, customers remained loyal. Also, during the three years before World War I, Heiser was responsible for one quarter of Milwaukee Ford Sales. Here is a brief time line of Heiser’s history: Pre-1917: Walter M. Heiser was employed by Ford Motor Company at the factory showroom located on the corner of P…
One of the things I enjoy about being a part of Heiser Automotive Group is that I get to meet many wonderful people in the community. Recently I had the opportunity to award the Heiser Preps Plus scholarship to Emily Peterson of Nathan Hale High School, and Kyle Manske of Wauwatosa East High School. These two young adults have many accomplishments and I am honored to have had the opportunity to have met them and to have Heiser help them further their educations. These two winners were selected based on the following selection criteria: Demonstrates involvement in school and/or community activities. Demonstrates academic success. Demonstrates a unique need or special situation.We are proud of both Emily and Kyle's accomplishments and involvement in both school activities and in the community. We are excited to see them further their education, and wish them great success in their future endeavors. Congratulations Emily & Kyle!
