Aldo Leopold Charter School’s Ella, Michael and Ella Memorial Scholarship was established in loving honor and memory of the Aldo Leopold Charter School students Ella Kirk, Michael Mahl and Ella Myers who lost their lives in a small airplane accident in May of 2014. Their dedication to environmental studies, music and the arts, and their level of community involvement and civic engagement, serves as an inspiration to all.
This Memorial Scholarship Fund will help to continue to keep Ella, Michael and Ella in all our hearts and minds by providing other Aldo Leopold Charter School students the opportunity to reach their own potential in the manner we so admired in each of these three students.
The mission of the Ella, Michael, Ella Memorial Scholarship is to inspire young people to follow their passion for the environment, the arts, music and community involvement, and to support them as they begin their post-secondary studies.
Applicants must be current Aldo Leopold High School graduating seniors planning to enroll in a full time accredited program such as college, community college, trade or vocational school, or certificate program for the fall 2015 semester.
For 2015, one $2,000 merit-based scholarship will be awarded.
