Wausaukee Club Honors Scholarship Recipients

Issue Date: June 9, 2022

The Wausaukee Club is a 117 year-old, 2,400-acre member- owned private club located in a beautiful and remote area near Athelstane. Members come from all parts of the United States to enjoy the beauty and serenity offered within Wausaukee Club boundaries. The club employs 38 people, many of them seasonal, and has an annual budget of approximately $1.1 million. In addition to other amenities, the Wausaukee Club property includes a 9-hole private golf course. Its grounds are not open to the public, and the web posting describes Wausaukee Club as "a recreational, pleasure, or social club."

It is that, but in recent years it has become that and more by adding a scholarship program and environmental improvement efforts through development of the Wausaukee Club Foundation. The foundation provides scholarships to graduates of Wausaukee and Crivitz high schools with money raised by donations from club members and fun fund raising events on Club grounds, including an auction each summer featuring works of art created by local artists, and a March Madness pool each year. Often the scholarship recipients are part-time employees of the club, or children and grandchildren of individuals employed there.

This year, for the first time, the Wausaukee Club Foundation hosted a dinner to celebrate the scholarship recipients. There are plans to make this an annual event. It was attended this year by more than 70 students, parents, school officials and others, including Wausaukee Club Foundation members who hosted the event. Many of them are assigned as mentors to help the scholarship recipients succeed in their college careers. The mentors come from all corners of the United States, and their task is to provide advice and support to help their mentees succeed.

This first annual scholarship dinner event was held Friday, May 27, at Manor on Main on Hwy. 141 in the Village of Wausaukee.

Dale Sailor, who lives in Illinois, was host for the evening. He greeted guests as they arrived, helped locate the assigned seats, and supervised introductions. It was noted that Sailor himself is a member of the Wausaukee Club Foundation and mentor for one of the scholarship students.

One of the co-hosts was Dede Waite, of Maine. A teacher by profession, Waite is one of the founders of the Wausaukee Club Foundation and also serves as a scholarship mentor.

She said the Wausaukee club has existed since 1890. The Foundation was started in 2016 because members wanted to do more for the environment and more for the local community. The foundation is currently assisting Crivitz and Wausaukee High School scholarship winners with $28,000 per year toward their college expenses.

The first 4-year scholarships, for $1,500 per year, were awarded to Wausaukee High School graduates. They were, in 2016, Rachel Ferrington, with Paul Holinger of Illinois as mentor; in 2017, Alysha Rickling, with Wendy Wile of Minnesota as mentor; and in 2018, Samantha Gruszynski, with Kandee Herr of Illinois as mentor.

In 2019 the Foundation began awarding two scholarships each year, one to a Crivitz High School student and one to a Wausaukee High School student. Winners were Nathalie Schroeder of Wausaukee with Waite as mentor, and Kailee Golla of Crivitz, with Caroline Fokl of Illinois and Sally Stentjes of Georgia as mentors.

In 2020 the Foundation increased the scholarship amount to $2,000 per year and began awarding four per year, two to students from Wausaukee and two to students from Crivitz. Winners that year were, from Wausaukee, Olivia Schramm with Dale Sailer of Illinois as mentor, and Courtney Peterson, with Sarah Sanford from Washington state as mentor, and from Crivitz, Liam Roman-Welch with Phil Sailer of Illinois as mentor, and Dayja Dickerson, with Wile as mentor.

Scholarships awarded in 2021 were to Wausaukee students Breanna Borchardt, with Rens Sherer of Illinois as mentor and Abigail Van Laanan, with Sean O'Brien of Georgia as mentor, and Crivitz students Madyson Myszka, with Ken Hampel of Vermont as mentor, and Kayla Bins, with Kim Sprole Wright of Colorado and Keith Sproule of Wyoming as mentors.

The featured honorees were the 2022 scholarship winners. They are, from Wausaukee High School, Autumn Schroeder, with Dorothy Lund of California as mentor, and Elizabeth Schaal, with Maisie and Chloe McCune of Maryland as mentors, and from Crivitz High School, Joseph Pickett, with Tick Holinger of Illinois as mentor and Morgan Dudkiewicz-Napholz, with Theresa Golden of Illinois as mentor.

Waite said plans are to award four of the four-year $2,000 per year scholarships again next year. This year the Foundation is paying a total of $28,000 toward education costs of the recipients at the various schools they are or will be attending.

Providing mentors is one of the key components of the scholarship program, Waite said, adding that she has been a teacher for 35 years, teaching theater at the high school level.

"It's your time to take over to make the world a better place," she told the scholarship winners. "Follow your hopes and dreams. Always be open to change and follow your passions....If you are not doing what you love when you get into the work force you won't make a difference....We all need to keep giving to make our world a better place."

Waite said she was born and raised in Maine, which is beautiful, but although she continues to live there, she has always "come home" to Wausaukee, and concluded, "I love the people and the communities here."

Sailer urged the 16 scholarship recipients to get to know each other and build on that, and to work closely with their mentors, and call on mentors of other students when necessary.

"Don't be shy," he told them. "We clearly are not. We will work with other kids besides those we are assigned to mentor." He noted the mentors have contacts that the students and their families do not.

He also urged them to stay in touch with their high school counselors, which he said is the route to future scholarships. He suggested they should also apply for one-year scholarships from other sources, and said many scholarships go unused each year because no one applies.

"Be the strongest advocate you can be for yourself," was Waite's final bit of advice.
