Redman Family donates 10000 DEF scholarship back to DEF

CHS Athletic Director, Gary Nallenweg, drew the winning raffle ticket for the $10,000 Gift of Education Scholarship at the February 21, 2020, CHS Boys’ Varsity basketball game. The raffle is an annual fundraiser hosted by the Duneland Education Foundation and Porter Bank. The scholarship can be used for any post-secondary education or training and can be given to anyone the winner chooses.

This year’s raffle winner was Kirk Redman. Kirk and his wife, Amy, have supported the Foundation for many years and were excited to announce they will donate the $10,000 award back to the Foundation.

“We have seen the tremendously positive impact the Foundation’s grant awards have and are confident this donation will benefit many Duneland students for years to come,” said Mr. Redman. The money will be used to further the Foundation’s mission of providing financial resources to enhance educational opportunities and experiences for all K-12 students of the Duneland community in the form of grants to support Duneland teachers and schools. The Foundation thanks the Redman family for their generosity and continued support!
