Student from St. Charles Receives Missouri Colleges Fund Scholarship

Ken Hohe of St. Charles has received a scholarship from the Missouri Colleges Fund (MCF) in recognition of his achievements at William Woods University. The son of Ken and Linda Hohe and a secondary education/English major, he will graduate May 10.

Money for the scholarship came from the Citigroup Foundation. Citing a desire to invest in education in the State of Missouri, the Citigroup Foundation provided a grant of $75,000 for the Missouri Colleges Fund to help in the fund’s efforts to address the severe shortage of qualified teachers across the state.

At William Woods, Hohe is a member of the baseball team, the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and a community advisor. He has participated in a number of campus-sponsored activities, including the Big Brother/Big Sister program and Inter-fraternity Council. He also has been a Campus Ambassador.

The grant, which was secured locally by the Citigroup Leadership Council, provides need-based financial aid to outstanding education students at the 11 MCF member independent colleges and universities. The funds were restricted to senior education students intending to go into teaching in a public school upon graduation.
