Edward and Betty Jean Waldron Scholarship
Brookfield Academy alumni parents Edward and Betty Jean Waldron recognized early on the importance of a great education. They saw the value of education as much broader than just the traditional classroom experience. Not only would a great education prepare students to attend the college or university of their choice, it would provide students with life-long friends, mentors, role models, and strong morals that would influence them as they moved to careers, have families, and become leaders in their church and community.
To honor their parent’s belief in the value of education, Michelle Waldron ‘73 Law and Peter Waldron ’78 established the Edward and Betty Jean Waldron Scholarship. Reflecting the values of their parents, it will be awarded to a student who demonstrates need, has a strong academic record, is a person of excellent personal character, and has a willingness to seize opportunities to grow as a student and as an individual. This endowed scholarship will provide a deserving student with an education that will have a lasting impact on their personal and professional lives.
To qualify, a student must:
- be entering grade 9
- demonstrate financial need
- take the scholarship test in November
- show academic promise and strong work ethic
- possess excellent personal character
- be a resident of Milwaukee or Waukesha County
Scholarship is renewable based on maintaining the criteria above.
