The Scott Skalitzky Memorial Scholarship Plow Day set for Oct. 31, 2020 has been postponed to Oct. 30, 2021.

This year $3,000 has been awarded to graduating seniors in the areas of mechanics, agriculture, conservation and medical.

The recipients included Erin and Emily Strauss of Lake Mills; Camden Schultz of Lake Mills; Morgan Bauer of Oconomowoc; and Brysen Clark of Reeseville.

The scholarship will continue next year even with COVID-19, as 60 scholarships have been awarded in the last 10 years.

The scholarships were started by family and friends of Scott, as he was an active member of 4-H and FFA. He grew up in Waterloo and after graduation, he completed a degree in diesel and ag mechanics from Madison College. He completed his career being plant manager for Renewable Energies-Waste Management in 2008 after a courage battle with cancer.
