Hope & Ron Lichtsinn Family Scholarship Total $22,500

FOREST CITY, IOWA, May 2024 – Earlier this month, at the Forest City Education Foundation Senior Awards Night, the Hope and Ron Lichtsinn Family Scholarships were given, reflecting the consistent support of the Lichtsinn family towards the growth of the Forest City community and overall North Iowa area. This represents the 20th consecutive year that the Lichtsinn Family has provided a scholarship to Forest City seniors. This year multiple scholarships were given for a combined total of $22,500.

The Lichtsinn Family Scholarship is awarded each year to a Forest City High School Senior/s who has/have met minimum GPA requirements and has/have displayed progressive participation in extracurricular activities such as volunteerism, academic groups, the arts, or sports.

This year there were three recipients of the general Lichtsinn Family Scholarship. Emma Anderson was selected, not only for her excellence in her studies but her athletic achievements in Basketball, Softball, Track & Field and Volleyball.

The 2nd recipient was Natalie Buffington for her involvement in youth gymnastics, assistance provided in the elementary school and Color Guard.

The 3rd recipient was Amelia Kobriger for her participation in Concert and Marching Band, Theatre and Bowling.

Additional scholarships were presented to members of the 2019 13U State Baseball Team. Lichtsinn direct family members and additional team members not pursuing college or who left Forest City Schools were not able to receive scholarship funds. This resulted in a balance of $7,500 that was awarded to the Carter Trunkhill Memorial Scholarship.

Congratulations to all of the scholarship recipients and best of luck with your future endeavours!
