Congratulations to Kelly Hentges, the 2011 RGS Scholarship recipient.

Kelly Hentges is the 2011 RGS Foundation Scholarship recipient. She is a 2011 graduate of Fremd high school. She will enroll at the University of Illinois in the fall. It is with great pleasure that we are able to present her this scholarship.

 

Mark Colgan is the 2009 RGS Foundation Scholarship recipient. He just graduated from Fremd High School, ranked # 70 in his class (and a 3.75/4 GPA). He is a four year, All-Conference Football Player; three year Track Team Member; a member of the National Honors Society; and started attending the University of Illinois last fall. We think Mark is an excellent representative of the RGS Foundation, and are proud to award him with this year's scholarship.

The R. Gregory Swedo Memorial Scholarship is a $4,000 scholarship that is awarded to one Fremd High School senior each year that attends the University of Illinois (Champaign/Urbana).  The scholarship shall be paid in annual installments of $1,000 per year, provided the recipient adheres to the continued excellence set forward by the foundation.  A panel of family and friends of Greg Swedo will choose recipient(s).

Greg was a 1992 graduate of Fremd High School and was a person who believed in education, enjoyed many sports, and was always there for his friends.  Greg excelled at basketball and soccer among other sports while at Fremd and the University of Illinois.  Greg was a wonderful and caring person, with a quick wit, and endless sense of humor.  He treasured his friends and family and lived his life with the belief that "you can never do enough for those you care about."  A passion to keep his spirit alive and to create a legacy of giving has caused this scholarship fund to be established.
