Jessica Munz, program manager, received the check at the recent Lancaster Community Grant presentation ceremony.

The Charles “Sonny” Tiedemann Charitable Fund awarded $1,000 to the UW-Platteville College for Kids program during the Lancaster Community Grant presentation ceremony held at Vesperman Farms. The check was received by Jessica Munz, program manager. These funds will provide scholarships to Lancaster students, who without financial assistance, would not be able to participate in the popular summer program, College for Kids (Grades K–4) and Middle University (Grades 5–7).

Monday, July 6, 2020, will mark the beginning of the university’s annual College for Kids program, where area students enjoy a taste of college life during four afternoons of learning and fun. In 2019, 208 children participated, and this first-time award will provide full scholarships for 10 Lancaster students in the 2020 program.
