Coal Creek Watershed Foundation awards
$10,000 scholarship to Bethany Wrede

It doesn't matter where you grew up or what school you attended. What matters is setting a higher standard for yourself and believing you can be anything in life that you want to be by working hard and getting the education that we need to make our dreams come true," wrote Bethany Leeann Wrede in her scholarship essay.

CCWF's goal is to give Briceville students the incentive to excel in middle school and high school, knowing they have the potential to get a college education.  Since 2002, twenty-three students from Briceville have received CCWF scholarships as described at http://www.coalcreekaml.com/ScholarsProgramPage.htm.
