Hankscraft is pleased to announce and congratulate two local students as annual scholarship winners. Cassidy Finke and Charles McGlynn, seniors from Reedsburg Area High School (RAHS) were as the winners of the 2024 scholarships. These students demonstrated remarkable achievements throughout their high school careers and have ambitious plans for their future education.

Scholarships Strengthen Local Community

Hankscraft and its partners give these annual scholarships to help local students with their education and fortify their futures. Investing in local students’ futures is vital to the strength of a community.

“We are proud to support local RAHS students who choose to further their education at a four-year or technical school,” said Kristi Brown, Vice President of Finance at Hankscraft. “We are also happy to see some of them return to the Reedsburg area and work in our community.”

Cassidy Finke, the recipient of the four-year scholarship, has a deep-rooted passion for agriculture. She plans to study Animal Science and Pre-Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Hankscraft is proud to award Cassidy’s dedication to this field and her academic success with this scholarship.

Charles McGlynn, the recipient of the two-year scholarship, enjoys metalwork. He plans to further his skills by attending Madison Area Technical College to study Welding. Charles has shown a dedication to his craft and a desire to excel in his chosen field, which earned him this well-deserved scholarship.

Hankscraft’s History of Giving

This year marks the ninth consecutive year of scholarships funded through a collaboration between Hankscraft, Sound Devices and the Markos Foundation. Over the past nine years, Hankscraft donated $45,000 to Reedsburg scholars. 

The scholarship recipients are selected through a comprehensive review process by a scholarship fund panel, which includes representatives from each organization. These panelists evaluate the students based on their academic success, extracurricular involvement, and leadership qualities.

These scholarships recognize the students’ dedication. Hankscraft extends heartfelt congratulations to Cassidy Finke and Charles McGlynn for their selection as annual scholarship winners and wishes them both a bright and successful future.
