VITERBO STUDENT RECEIVES DISTINGUISHED SCHOLARSHIP
LA CROSSE, Wis.— Viterbo University student Jen Jahsman is one of only seven students in Wisconsin to receive the Rath Distinguished Scholarship for the 2002-03 academic year.
Jahsman, a senior majoring in dietetics, was awarded the Rath Distinguished Scholarship for $9,000. Rath 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.
Jahsman is the daughter of William and Carol Jahsman of Medford.
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.
