Scholarships

The Speaker’s Award is presented to a Bowling Green High School (BGHS) graduate, based on achievement, leadership and a desire to pursue law, political science, or related field. Students are selected by school staff.

The award, named after Speaker of the House Champ Clark, is made possible through the Schewe Fund, established by Eleanor Schewe, through which over $8,000 has been presented to BGHS graduates. Dr. Schewe, a 1941 Washington University graduate, who earned a PhD in biology from Bryn Mawr College, recently passed away at the age of 99. Dr. Schewe was raised in Vandalia and graduated from Vandalia High School and had lived in Vandalia since 1960.
