The Jacob Trotter Memorial Scholarship gives a scholarship of $500 to a student on the autism spectrum. It is funded by David and Greta Menke of Bristol, Wisconsin, in memory of their grandson Jacob David Trotter. Jacob Trotter was born June 25, 2001, in Madison, WI, and died unexpectedly at home on September 25, 2014. He was a student at Lodi Middle School in Lodi, WI. He was the light of his parents’ and grandparents’ lives. Jacob was an avid history buff. His favorite topics were Civil War, WWII, European Theater, and WWII Reenactments.
This year’s winner of the Jacob Trotter Memorial Scholarship is Scott Schoeller of Janesville, WI. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from UW-Whitewater, and is now pursuing a masters of science in computer science at the same school. Congratulations, Scott!
