The William D. Brand Memorial Scholarship was created to honor Coach Casey Brand's father, who passed away in September 2011. To date, 7 deserving student-athletes have been awarded a total of $3000. These young people have been dedicated to the sport of volleyball in both club and high school, and have volunteered many, many hours at camps and on youth teams in the community! Currently, two of the scholarship recipients are playing volleyball in college.
This years winners are Mariah Nelson and Kelli Kontney. Mariah is from St. Anthony on the Lake and Catholic Memorial High School and Kelli is from St. Martin of Tours and Muskego High School. Past recipients of the scholarship are; Anthony Buffone (Christ King, MUHS), Stephanie Breunig (St. Mary's Hales Corners, Whitnall), Allison Barnes (WCSS, Waukesha West, Ripon College), Julia Teresa (WCSS, CMH) and Nick Wildes (WCSS, Waukesha West, Limestone College).
Congratulations to all the winners!
