Ehrmeyer Scholarship awarded to freshman Nolan Schmitt

RELEASED: Aug. 6, 2010

EAU CLAIRE — Nolan Schmitt, Beaver Dam, has been awarded the Jerry and Sharon Ehrmeyer Scholarship to attend the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire for the 2010-11 academic year.

The endowed scholarship for Beaver Dam High School graduates who plan to attend UW-Eau Claire was established by the spouse of UW-Eau Claire alumnus Jerry Ehrmeyer, who was an assistant professor of psychology and then assistant director of the university's Career Services office from 1978 until his retirement in 1996. He died in December 2005.

Dr. Sharon Ehrmeyer, professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at UW School of Medicine and Public Health, wanted to honor her husband, who graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 1960 with a bachelor's degree in sociology and in 1962 with a bachelor's degree in social science. Both Ehrmeyers grew up in Beaver Dam.

The scholarship is designated for students who have solid academic backgrounds, a wide range of interests and financial need. It is renewable for the sophomore year provided that the student maintains good academic standing.

UW-Eau Claire is consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report and other national publications as one of the nation's best educational values and among the top public regional universities in the Midwest.
