Mary Smith


Dear WCTC Foundation Committee,

At this time, I would like to express my deepest gratitude in receiving the James Schaller Memorial Scholarship award.

I am a woman who already has a BA at this time of my life and changing career goals. This is due to helping my mom through her journey with cancer.

With this award I plan to put forth these funds towards my future nursing path & curiculum here at WCTC.

Dear Mr. Poggensee:

I am enclosing a “thank you” letter our office recently received from Mary E. Smith who has benefited from the James Schaller Memorial Scholarship held within the WCTC Foundation. I am happy to be able to share this special letter of appreciation with you.

Our special thanks to you for giving our students the incentive and motivation to coninue working toward their goals with the reassurance that others believe they can do it.

Thank you again Mr. Poggensee, for your gracious support of WCTC students.

Dear Mr. Poggensee:

Thank you for your check in the amount of $1,000 on behalf of the Michael J. Schaller Foundation (Ron Kohl check #1032). As you stated in your note, this very generous gift is to be applied to the “James Schaller Memorial Scholarship Fund” held within the WCTC Foundation. It is further understood that the student being offered this scholarship must meet the following criteria:

  • Proven academic record (3.0 or greater GPA)
  • Be in their last 2 semesters of a 2-year program of their choice

Your gift makes a significant difference in helping our students meet their educational costs. This is a wonderful tribute to your friend, Michael. Please know that our students are very grateful for your support.

Best wishes to you and members of the Michael J. Schaller Foundation Board of Directors.
