Harry Weichel Scholarship for Educators Endowment Account
As an educator, Mr. Weichel was genuinely interested in students’ and colleagues’ lives, their growth, and achievements. He continually sought input on how Ralston schools could best serve everyone’s development as community-minded citizens, valued employees, and family members. When connecting with others, his positive and appreciative spirit lifted others up. His humble, lifelong commitment to service beyond self is an example for Ralston educators. Every year, this scholarship is awarded to Ralston Public Schools educators who demonstrate unwavering service to others and outreach within the community. The scholarship will help support their post graduate studies.
