BREACH & FOERSTERA WIN BERTRAND SCHOLARSHIPS

Leah Breach hopes to “create impactful, world-changing decisions” as she pursues a degree in business with a focus on green and sustainable management at Liberty University in Virginia. The daughter of Julie and Nicholas Breach of Oconomowoc has volunteered hundreds of hours for area nonprofits and school organizations. A member of DECA since she was a freshman, Leah was named “member of the year” and served as co-president of the marketing club for two years. She was also a member of the National and Business Honor Societies and competed on the OHS JV tennis team. Leah will receive $12,000 over four years as the winner of a scholarship from the Richard R. and Karen Bertrand Charitable Fund of the Oconomowoc Area Foundation.

Aiden Foerstera likes to say, “you can't argue with numbers.” And he has put up some impressive ones. Aiden is the valedictorian of the OHS class of 2022 with a grade point average of 4.63. He is a member of the Math and Science Honor Societies, tutored students in both those subjects, and played four years of baseball and basketball at OHS. The son of Chris and Denelle Foerstera of Oconomowoc will receive $12,000 over four years as the winner of a scholarship from the Richard R. and Karen Bertrand Charitable Fund of the Oconomowoc Area Foundation. Teachers call Aiden “a strong leader in and out of the classroom.” He will attend Auburn University in Alabama and major in engineering - hoping to use his math skills “in a productive way to make the world a better

place.”
