MCS Educational Foundation Scholarships Awarded to MHS Seniors

The Madison Central School Educational Foundation Board of Directors and scholarship donors were present to award Foundation scholarships to MHS graduating seniors at the "Glad You Are a Bulldog!" and Senior Recognition awards ceremony in the MHS Auditorium on May 16, 2014.

Barbara Hegg and her son, Jeremy, presented the first Dennis Hegg Memorial Scholarship to Jackson Richards. Richards will attend Concordia College in Moorehead, Minnesota to study piano performance. Dennis Hegg instilled the love of music in thousands of high school students throughout his career as band director. Dennis was Band Director at MHS for 12 years and served on the Madison School Board from 2004-2009.

Jackson Richards was also the recipient of the Timothy & Monica Campbell Family Scholarship, presented by Monica and Tim Campbell. The Campbell Family Scholarship honors family members who are MHS alumni, including Jennifer Campbell Myers, Clay Campbell, Kelsey Campbell Marker and Kyle Marker, and supports students who are majoring in music in college.

The Ben Bundy Memorial Scholarship was presented by Joe Bundy and Megan Olson to Rush Milne, who will attend USD to study psychology. This scholarship honors Joe's brother, Ben, MHS 2008, who passed away in 2010 from a brain aneurism, but who left a lasting imprint at MHS for all who knew him as a young man who cared about other people.

The Aus Family Scholarship award was presented to Samantha Swenson who will attend SDSU and major in pre-physical therapy. The Aus Family Scholarship honors Robert Aus, Tom Aus, both deceased, and recognizes Kay Aus Pederson. Robert Aus served on the Madison School Board from 1958-1965, and it was this Board that supervised the construction of Madison High School at its present location.

The George Scully Scholarship was presented to Tyler Currey, who plans to major in agronomy at SDSU. This scholarship was set up by the grandchildren of George Scully to honor his life of service and accomplishments and his membership in the Class of 1935. This scholarship supports students majoring in agriculture or the medical field.

MEA/MCSEF Scholarships were awarded to three students, Ashley Schwebach, Haley Hansen and Samantha Swenson, all who will be attending SDSU. This joint scholarship between the Madison Education Association and the MCS Educational Foundation requires evidence of leadership experience and community service.

MCS Educational Foundation Director, Beth Knuths presented some of the awards on behalf of the Foundation. Knuths said, Scholarship donors value education and the impact education makes on the individual, the community and the world. Donors give scholarships through the MCS Educational Foundation because they are proud of their affiliation with Madison High School and they want to give back. Knuths said it is the Foundation's hope that students are inspired to give back too someday. Helping future students they may not know, because of a mutual MHS connection and Bulldog Pride, that's the same spirit of philanthropy that everyone witnessed here today."
