4th Annual $10,000 Brian LaViolette Scholarship

After interviewing six outstanding students from six different high schools in the Green Bay area, we had a hard decision to make. All of the students were more than qualified to receive the $10,000.00 Brian LaViolette Scholarship. All will make a difference in this world-all for different reasons.

It was one of those years (like most years) we wish we could present all six with Brian's scholarship, but in the end, one stood taller to us- Brigitte Juppe from DePere High School.

Brigitte will be attending Marquette University in the fall with plans to major in biomedical science and minor in Spanish. She'd like to continue her education at medical school and enter in the medical field as a bilingual Neonatalogist or Family Practitioner. We have no doubt that wherever life's journey takes her, she will make a positive change in this world.

In her essay she states: "The recipient of Brian's scholarship needs to keep his memory alive and serve as a positive role model, both of which I feel I am capable of accomplishing by working hard to obtain the successful future life I know he would have led." We know Brigitte will make us and Brian proud.
