Download Donald Haake Scholarship Application 2015-2016
Donald Haake was a Lutheran Parochial School Teacher for 44 years of his life. His greatest joy was touching children’s lives through his work as a teacher and witnessing as a Christian. He was a great example to his family, co-workers, and students and therefore would have wanted to assist some young individual to have the same opportunity. His family established this scholarship in his remembrance so that what he lived and taught would continue.
