Great Falls Leadership Scholarship

The Wenaas Administrative Scholarship was established by the Great Falls Education Foundation as a general scholarship fund. This fund was then transferred to the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation in 2013 when the two foundations merged. Over the years the fund has been buoyed by contributions from numerous sources including former Superintendent Larry Williams.

Believing that the demonstration of outstanding leadership by this next generation of citizens is key to our kids, our community and our future, current Superintendent Tammy Lacey made a personal contribution to the scholarship.

1. Must show need of financial assistance.
