PLATTEVILLE — Kendra Feuling, daughter of Holly Feuling, is one of the 2012 recipients of two $500 PHS Scholarship Fund scholarships in the name of the Curry Family and Shopping News/Woodward Printing.
Feuling is attending UW–Madison for Music Education/Special Education with a goal of obtaining a Music Therapy License to work with the handicapped. She was a teacher’s assistant in the Adaptive Music classes for the special education students at Platteville High School. Feuling volunteered her time at Manor Care Nursing Center doing physical activities and games with the residents and the Platteville Public Library during special program activities for children.
Living in a single parent home puts a financial strain on those wanting to achieve further education.
The Curry family is one of long-standing strong ties to the Platteville community. George and Linda Curry and their four children, Jeff, Nate, Jon and Kristy, contribute in different ways. Linda taught for more than 30 years as a kindergarten teacher in Potosi and continues to substitute on a regular basis.
Former Grant County Circuit Court Judge George Curry worked as an attorney at Kopp McKichan until 1990 when he was appointed and served for 20 years. George now has his own practice, Curry Law & Mediation, in Platteville.
All four children graduated from Platteville High School and are actively involved in sports and music.
Jeff lives in Madison and is the legislative assistant to state Rep. Travis Tranel (R–Cuba City).
Nate lives in Platteville with his wife, Crystal, and daughters Alaina, 4, and Avery, 1. He is a partner at the Kopp McKichan law firm here in Platteville and serves as a board member for Family Connections and The Platteville Community Fund. His wife Crystal, daughter of Mark and Diane Edgette, a pediatric nurse at the UW Children’s Hospital in Madison, is also a lifelong resident of Platteville.
Jon lives in Minneapolis and is attending grad school for public administration.
Kristy is living in Sacramento, Calif., and working as a commodities buyer at an aerospace company.
“I know that I, as well as my parents, see the program as a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community and the school that has given us so much,” said Nate Curry. “To be able to help out someone like Kendra, who has such an inspiring goal in life to become a Music Therapist and help with handicapped people is a great honor. We look forward to continuing to contribute to the PHS Scholarship Fund in the years to come.”
“Woodward Communications has always supported the Platteville community and is proud to help the next generation of PHS graduates achieve their dreams,” said Brian Stuart, Grant, Iowa, Lafayette Shopping News.
