The Robert Jacque Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to honor the late Robert Jacque. After Robert’s passing at the young age of 44, three of his closest friends decided to honor his life with a scholarship in his name. Additionally, at that time the team of friends hosted a fundraiser for Robert and received an outpouring amount of support. The Robert Jacque Memorial Scholarship Fund falls under the Winneconne Area Community Foundation umbrella and provides graduating Winneconne High School seniors the opportunity to receive various scholarships.
Robert was a student from Winneconne, and later got his Bachelors and Master’s Degree from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. Throughout his life, Robert was very involved with his community. His passions revolved around providing for his community, and most importantly his family. He always gave back to his community, friends and family. Robert’s kind heart will be missed by many within his community.
The Robert Jacque Memorial Scholarship Fund supports the further education of Winneconne High School graduating seniors who:
- Have a 3.0 GPA or greater
- Plan to attend a four-year University of Wisconsin college.
This scholarship is awarded the second semester of the recipient’s freshman year on the condition that the student has a 2.5 GPA or greater.
