Jackson Meissner says “Good enough has never been an answer for me. You always have to try your hardest, even if it's uncomfortable.” He ran on the track and cross-country teams, was named a Scholar Athlete twice, performed as a drummer with OHS jazz and combo bands, and was a technology intern for the school district. His youth pastor says Jackson is “genuine, trustworthy, and cares about people in a way that is rarely seen.”
Jackson will major in computer science at Bethel University in Minnesota - hoping to “solve real-world problems and make a lasting impact” on his community. The son of Jamie and Darryl Meissner of Ixonia will receive $12,000 over four years from the Oconomowoc Scholarship Fund.
