Garrett Hartke (pictured above) was recently named the 2017 recipient of the $850 Delbert and Maradyl Facklam Scholarship. Garrett will attend Lake Land College in the fall to study agriculture production.
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.
