Anna Hartke has been named the recipient of the $895 Delbert and Maradyl Facklam Scholarship. Anna is a 2016 graduate of Teutopolis High School and plans to attend University of Missouri and major in animal science. She plans to attend veterinary school and return to Effingham County to open a practice and work with farmers and their livestock.
The Delbert and Maradyl Facklam Scholarship was established by the late Delbert Facklam, for the purpose of perpetuating higher education opportunities for Teutopolis High School graduates in memory of the Teutopolis High School faculty and classmates of the Class of 1939. Mr. Facklam was born in Stewardson, Illinois and attended St. Michael’s School in Sigel until his senior year, where he attended Teutopolis High School. After retiring from the U.S. Navy, Mr. Facklam lived most of his adult life in California. However, he never abandoned the regional area where he spent his earliest years.
