Mark Steffes Award

The Foundation for Winona Area Public Schools is pleased to announce Ethan Scharmer as the recipient of the 2015 Mark Steffes Scholarship Award. Ethan has always been passionate about football, an all-around athlete, friend, and definitely knows the definition of “team”.  Community is important to Ethan, and it is clear to the scholarship committee, that education is important as well.  Ethan always showed how hard he has worked in the classroom and in football.  Ethan will be attending St. Olaf in the fall. Mark Steffes’ parents, family and friends wanted to keep his memory alive by supporting someone’s journey into higher education that was passionate about football.  Mark graduated from WSHS in 1996 and had played football since he was very young.
