    Congratulations to Cody Gerhardson for being the recipient of the 2019 Eugene A. LaRock Memorial Award and Scholarship. 

    Cody Gerhardson is a strong student with a drive to do his best in the area of Business. He was the Business Manager and co-editor for the 2018-19 yearbook year and did a great job! He put in a lot of extra time outside of class and was always willing to help out with tasks. Cody was a member of the inaugural Financial Academy Technical Diploma program and excelled in this program. He is attending WITC majoring in Accounting this fall. Congratulations Cody!
