We met Rose in 2005 after her son, Ben Edinger, was killed in duty in Iraq in late 2004.  He had graduated from Green Bay West in 1999 and attend UW-Oshkosh for one year before joining the Marines. 

We are in the 13th year of awarding the Ben Edinger Scholarship of Honor.  And we are proud to do so each year. 

Ben's mom, Rose is very involved with the section process and making the presentation.  

She has shared what this scholarship means to her and the community here...
