A Day for Nicolet event fundraises for college scholarships
RHINELANDER - A college education costs a lot of money. Scholarships are a BIG HELP in making it possible for students to attend college.

The Nicolet College Foundation held its largest fundraiser of the year today, A Day for Nicolet.

"Today is a very important day. It's more than just dollars for scholarships though. It's also about strengthening relationships with the so many donars who support the Nicolet College Foundation and ultimately Nicolet College students," says Heather Schallock, Executive Director of Nicolet College Foundation.

Volunteers are made up of alumni, students, and community members. Many Nicolet students depend on scholarships.

"Without the boost of the scholarships my first semester, I probably would have never enrolled at all. That scholarship enabled me to enroll, and indeed, finish my program," says Tony Bellman, student and Nicolet College Student Ambassador.

The Nicolet College Foundation has hundreds of donors. Scholarships are issued to about a hundred students. They help students pay for books and tuition.

"The returning adult, when they're trying to juggle family, and school, and work all at the same time, because your school time takes away from your work time, those scholarships are definitely needed to fill the gap or bridge the gap for the income level," said Bellman.

People are still able to donate after today. You can find out how to donate by contacting the Nicolet College Foundation at (715)-365-4518 or check out the scholarship page on their website.

MERRILL - As Linda DeBroux walks through Merrill High School, she can see the halls she helped create.

What started as plain, whitewashed walls now look like an art gallery. For each of the last 13 summers, DeBroux has guided a select group of her art students to create murals to fill the walls.

"When I walk down, I don't just see the painting, I see the student, right there, painting on that wall," she said Wednesday. "I think of all the struggles, the struggle points they had, and parts where they celebrated."

Murals by ten students this week will bring the total to 157 on school walls. Like it does every summer, it will take long days to accomplish the project.
