The funds will go to support the first annual scholarship in honor of the Marquette High School alumnus who passed away earlier this year.

Richard “Grady” de la Cruz died in a tragic accident on Lake Mendota on Wednesday, August 21st. Grady, a native of Wauwatosa, was an alumnus of Marquette High School. He was attending the University of Wisconsin Madison and had recently transferred from Marquette University. He was majoring in Occupational Psychology.
“We know the passing of Grady was a shock to the community. He was a positive, well rounded student. He had a great future ahead of him,” Chris Meyer, General Manager at Heiser Ford Lincoln. “That’s why we want to honor his memory by helping other local students get a great education, so they can give back to the community, just like Grady wanted to do. By helping support this scholarship, we are helping keep his spirit alive in the hearts of those who loved him.”
The event will be held at the Glendale dealership from 9:30AM to 4:30PM. Attendees can choose to test-drive from the Lincoln lineup. Heiser Ford Lincoln’s staff will be on-site to speed the process and provide additional information about each vehicle.
