News Journal

The deadline for Chatfield College’s U.S. Constitution Scholarship has been extended to Monday, April 16. The $4,000 scholarship will be awarded to one high school senior that enrolls at Chatfield College, with $1,000 available per semester for four semesters.

In order to apply, students must submit an essay of 500 words or less describing, “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.”

The idea for this scholarship came from Brown County resident of almost 50 years, Bill Herdman. He is also one of the oldest surviving World War II veterans living in Brown County and is active in local veterans activities and other civic organizations.

Herdman will be one of five judges for this program. In addition, the others are: superintendent of Brown County Educational Service Center Jim Frazier, former U.S. congresswoman Jean Schmidt, Chatfield Trustee Robert Knueven, and Chatfield’s president, John P. Tafaro.

Interested students can submit their essays online at or get a scholarship application from their high school guidance counselor.
