Three students with strong ties to Door County – Spencer Gustafson, Barbara Haverli and Margaret Giblin – were named the latest recipients of the Ted Pollman Scholarship.
Now in its 13th year, the Ted Pollman Scholarship was created by the Pollman family, owners of Door Peninsula Winery and other Door County businesses, to honor the memory of their youngest son. The intent of the Pollman Scholarship is to award a graduating (or recently graduated) senior who has overcome financial, scholastic and/or physical challenges in their life and has ambitions of furthering their education.
Gustafson is currently in his first year as a student at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay; he plans to study criminal justice and law enforcement.
Haverli, currently a senior at Southern Door High School, is planning to enroll in the accredited ultrasound technician program at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay.
Giblin, a Sevastopol graduate, began her studies at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, majoring in athletic training. She has spent previous summers working at Cooper’s Corner in Fish Creek as a hostess and waitress.
“I wasn’t really expecting it,” Giblin said. “This is a really nice honor and just working so much at Cooper’s, it’s nice to actually be appreciated in such a way.”
