WETA is proud to offer up to three (3) annual $1,000 scholarships for students attending a Post-Secondary Institution. These scholarships, the Harmon Memorial Scholarship, and the Brasch Memorial Scholarship, are offered in memory of two former WETA members who had a lasting impact on WETA and the Employment and Training field.
Dennis Harmon was a dedicated professional who spent most of his work life serving the needs of the poor and unemployed through the development, operation and management of education, employment and training programs in Wisconsin.
John Brasch was a founder of WETA and remained an active member until his death. He was deeply committed to working with the disadvantaged as a guidance counselor at North Central Technical College.
The Older Worker Network (OWN), partnering with WETA for the Annual Conference, also sponsors an annual scholarship in honor of Fred Lengfeld. Learn more about OWN and the Fred Lengfeld scholarship here.
