The legacy of Harold C. Dobberpuhl, who for 38 years served as the Ozaukee County Clerk, will live on through the establishment of the countywide.
HAROLD C. DOBBERPUHL MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Curt Gruenwald, President of the Ozaukee County Historical Society, announced that the decision to sponsor the Harold C. Dobberpuhl Memorial Scholarship Fund was made through unanimous Board action taken at their monthly Board of Directors meeting.
"He will always be remembered for serving only the people with many years of service that reflected his integrity without compromise and humble servant hood to all of Ozaukee County! He has set the standards when it comes to dedication, honesty, attention to detail, commitment and accomplishment. There’s a wide spectrum of Harold’s involvement within the County and beyond that there isn’t enough room to list it all! As a lifetime member, support of the Ozaukee County Historical Society reached all aspects to include the Ozaukee County Pioneer Village, Stony Hill School, the Ozaukee County Archives Research Center, and the Interurban Depot Project to name just a few! His passion and commitment to preservation of the past along with the legacy of public service left behind needs to be remembered and there is no better way than the establishment of this scholarship fund!" Gruenwald mentioned.
The scholarship fund will be awarded on an annual basis to an Ozaukee County High School Senior who will pursue a career relating to that of Harold’s many years of public service as Ozaukee County Clerk or in a field relating to his many passions to include history, preservation, and photography. A Scholarship Committee has been established with criteria, eligibility, and the amount to be awarded on an annual basis. The total amount awarded in the scholarship will depend upon donations received, serving as the investment principle of the fund. Tax-deductible contributions may be sent to the Ozaukee County Historical Society at PO Box 206, Cedarburg, WI 53012 and clearly marked for the Harold C. Dobberpuhl Memorial Scholarship Fund. Scholarship applications can be picked up from any Ozaukee County High School Guidance Office or at the Ozaukee County Archives Research Center.
