Harmann Family Creates Scholarship Fund

The Harmann Family and the Door County Community Foundation are pleased to announce the creation of the Darlene and Wayne Harmann Scholarship Fund, which honors the lives of Darlene and Wayne Harmann. Their children – John Harmann, Kevin Harmann and Stacy Stutz – are offering the community a matching opportunity. From Nov. 21 (Wayne’s birthday) to Dec. 17 (Darlene’s birthday), the Harmann family will match dollar-for-dollar all gifts made to the Fund up to a total match of $20,000. The Darlene and Wayne Harmann Scholarship is a $1,000 annual scholarship which can be renewed for four consecutive years, and is available to students seeking careers in agriculture, history or art. High school graduates with a GPA of at least 3.0 from Southern Door, Gibraltar, Sevastopol, Washington Island, Sturgeon Bay High Schools in Door County and Algoma, Luxemburg-Casco, and Kewaunee High Schools in Kewaunee County are eligible to be considered beginning with the 2016-17 academic year. “We want to honor our parents’ incredible work ethic by helping a local student seeking further education in areas of interest to my parents,” said Kevin Harmann, who currently runs the Harmann farm that has been in the family for more than 100 years. Darlene (Bellin) and Wayne Harmann were born, raised and returned to build their professional and family lives in Door and Kewaunee County. Both were the first generation in their families to attain college degrees, and Dar was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and taught history at Southern Door High School for more than 30 years. They grew to be integral members of the Door and Kewaunee communities during their lifetimes, and their children’s families continue to run the businesses they worked so hard to build.
