Princess Warrior 2022 Scholarship
Since the Class of 2022 would have been Jane's graduating class The PW Foundation decided to do something special with our scholarships!
Each spring, the Princess Warrior committee awards a scholarship to a Wadena-Deer Creek High School graduating senior with Jane-like qualities.
Since its inception the spring after Jane's death, nine students have received a $500 scholarship. This year, the Princess Warrior Foundation Committee awarded $15,000 at the annual senior award ceremony on Wednesday, May 18th. The Scholarships were awarded in honor of Jane Fiemeyer who died in 2012 from Leukemia and would have graduated from Wadena-Deer Creek High School with the Class of 2022.
During the presentation ceremony, Jane's mom, Jil, thanked the seniors for not forgetting Jane, their classmate, who passed away at the start of their third-grade year. Jil told the applicants, "We knew that Jane would want all of you, her classmates, to have a scholarship, and we know all of you will continue to make a difference as you go out into this world."
The Class of 2022 scholarship were awarded to Madison Packer, Anna Church, Isabel Ellingson, Grace Gallant, Lauryn Gravelle, Jamie Barthel, Summer Pettit, Zooey Rouslang, Kaylin Lupkes and Mikayla Varella, and they each received $1,500 to use towards their plans after graduation.
