VITERBO STUDENTS RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIP HONORS
LA CROSSE, Wis.—Two Viterbo University students have recently been named recipients of prestigious scholarships for the 2001-02 academic year.
Brenda Cetera, a senior majoring in music theatre, was named a "Liberace Scholar" when she received a prestigious $3,000 scholarship from the Liberace Foundation. Liberace scholarship recipients are promising and deserving juniors and seniors enrolled in a course of study leading to a career in the arts. The purpose of the award is to provide grants, to be used exclusively toward tuition, to accredited institutions that offer training in performing and creative arts. Cetera is the daughter of Robert Cetera of Decatur, Ala. and Kathy Porter of Wausaukee.
Catherine Scrivner, a junior majoring in Health Care Administration, was awarded the Rath Distinguished Scholarship for $9,000. Rath Distinguished Scholars are outstanding students who have combined high academic achievement with leadership and community service. A one-time scholarship, it is made possible by a generous gift from the foundation of the late Duane Rath, a businessman who was one of the first and only business owners in the nation to offer tuition assistance to all children of employees. Scrivner is the daughter of Robert and Mary Scrivner of Woodruff.
Viterbo University is a private, co-educational, liberal arts university located in La Crosse, Wis. It was founded more than a century ago by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.
