No decisions have been made at this time, but I feel there is a good foundation built. I hope all of you have put forth the proper planning for the big event :). Stay tuned - it is going to be hard to beat Katy Perry from last year (some of my students at school still call me Ms. Perry).
Some Great Pics / Moments...
...and a Scholarship.
Joe Vogel, Cotter class of 1996, was a devoted alum and community member. The Cotter community had a positive impact on Joe’s life – leading him to often share memories or stories from his time at Cotter. Cotter was part of his family. Joe passed away in August of 2010 from colon cancer. In the months before he passed, Joe organized the Team Vogel vs. Cancer Fundraiser, which raises money for Winona-area families dealing with cancer, cancer research and a patient fund at an area hospital. Joe will always be remembered for his smile, sense of humor and his efforts to “Pay it Forward” -- to give back to others.
Created by Joe’s Family, Friends, and co-workers at Frito Lay Inc., the Joe Vogel “Pay it Forward” Scholarship Fund has been established. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a Cotter Student who upholds and lives the spirit of “Pay it Forward”. The award will be applied directly to their Cotter tuition.
To apply for this 2013-2014 scholarship, student applicants are asked to:
1) Submit a one page essay explaining how they “Pay it Forward” – give back to others.
2) Submit one letter of recommendation from a teacher and one letter of recommendation from a community member. Letters of reference should explain how they can attest to the student’s efforts to “Pay if Forward.”
Students should turn in the essay and letters to the Advancement Office no later than December 2nd, 2013. This scholarship opportunity is available to ALL Cotter students grades 7-12.
If you have any questions, I invite you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling me at 507-453-5102. I hope you all encourage your child(ren) to consider applying for this wonderful scholarship. Having known Joe personally, I can truly imagine how pleased Joe would be with the efforts of many of our students to "Pay it Forward" and how happy he would be to be able to continue to "Pay it Forward" to Cotter students in this way.
