Berndt Brothers – Family and Friends Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Berndt Brothers – Family and Friends Memorial Scholarship Fund is in memorial of Rob Berndt who passed away from a heart attack on April 29, 2019. Rob had suffered from a heart attack after finishing a round of golf, which was a passion of his. Those that were with him the night he passed normally had a golf outing they attended yearly together. However, after Rob’s passing, the golf outing changed to be a memorial in his honor. Due to the proceeds from this event, Rob’s wife, children, and brothers set up the Berndt Brothers – Family and Friends Memorial Scholarship Fund. Since then, the team has held three annual golf outings. The name of the fund was influenced by those who have supported and attended these outings; specifically, friends, Rob’s brothers, and other family members

In addition to Rob’s passion for golf, Rob was on the Winneconne school board and was an assistant coach for the Winneconne girl’s softball team for 12 years. The scholarship reflects the passions of Rob and requires the student not only to have good grades, but also to have participated in golf, softball, or soccer.

The scholarship supports graduating high school seniors from Winneconne High School. The scholarship criteria includes:

  • Applicants must be involved in one or more of the following sports at some time during their high school career: soccer, golf or softball
  • Applicants must be planning to attend either a 4-year or 2-year college or technical college
  • This scholarship is a one-time non-renewable scholarship
  • Family would like to present the scholarship during senior awards night when possible
