The B&B Legacy Scholarships awarded four $1,000 scholarships through the Nemaha County STEP Foundation this year to graduating seniors who previously attended B&B School. The Legacy Scholarships are a result of a challenge presented to the St. Benedict and Baileyville communities and alumni by August Bergman, M.D., during the 2006 graduation ceremony. Thus, began the fundraising to match Dr. Bergman’s seed money of $25,000.

During the fundraising, another graduate Albert Wietharn offered an additional $25,000 if the communities would match his gift. Both challenges were met, and the $100,000 was exceeded. The B&B Legacy Scholarships became a reality due to the dedication and generosity of the alumni and communities of St. Benedict and Baileyville.

This year’s recipients are from Nemaha Central High School. Addy Holthaus, daughter of Brian and Lisa Holthaus, plans to attend Highland Community College and major in animal science. Elli Rusche, daughter of Damian and Jennifer Rusche, plans to attend Rockhurst University and major in nursing. John Siess, son of Richard and Beth Siess, plans to attend Highland Community College Western Center and major in diesel technology.

The Nemaha County STEP Foundation is proud to announce one recipient of the Leroy “Roy” Heiman Memorial Scholarship. The Heiman family partnered with STEP to honor Roy. Korbin Macke, son of Steve and Jessie Macke, plans to attend Highland Community College majoring in applied science.

The Nemaha County STEP Foundation is honored to be able to assist in awarding these scholarships to these students. STEP strives to assist in helping caring citizens develop ways to help others and leave a lasting legacy.
