Hamilton student winner of Kohl scholarship

Hamilton High School senior Tyler Gall was awarded the 2015 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Excellence Scholarship. Gall was recognized at a luncheon April 11 hosted by retired U.S. Senator Herb Kohl.

The Herb Kohl Excellence Scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated academic potential, outstanding leadership, citizenship, community service, integrity and other special talents. Gall will receive a $3,000 scholarship to pursue post-secondary education.

Since 1990, the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has awarded $9 million to Wisconsin students, teachers and schools. In celebration of the foundation’s 25th anniversary this year, Herb Kohl tripled the scholarship amount from $1,000 to $3,000 per recipient.
