Matthew Kolkhorst was recognized for earning a scholarshipChuck Behrens Memorial Scholarship- Charles L. Behrens was a driven individual who always found a way to achieve his goals. Aside from successful career stints at The Reuben H. Donnelly Company and NCC, he was a disc jockey, a marathon runner, a football and basketball coach, and an avid reader. He believed that regardless of what you wanted to do in life an education would play a vital role.
His motto was, No matter what happens, you will always have your education. No one and nothing can ever take that away from you. Charles graduated high school from Valley Forge Military Academy. He then went to St. Bonaventure University where he accomplished his goal of becoming a radio disc jockey for a major radio station in Buffalo. He then received a bachelor degree from Hofstra University with a major in history and a minor in accounting.
This scholarship is for someone who believes that an education not only leads a person on the path of a successful future, but a person who also feels the way Charles did; that an education can aid you in all aspects of your future, no matter what path you choose.Added by Matthew
