Dr. William “Bill” Harris established the Kathy Harris Scholarship in memory of his wife Kathy who died in 2004. Kathy was an elementary education teacher in Kenosha County. Kathy was a dedicated teacher whose passion was working with kindergarten students. This scholarship is dedicated in Kathy’s memory by her son Ben and husband Bill to further a Carthage student’s educational pursuit.
The Kathy Harris Scholarship is given to a current degree-seeking, full-time adult learner in the 7-week or part-time semester program who has demonstrated academic accomplishment and has financial need. Academic accomplishment is not limited to GPA standing but can also refer to specific accomplishments within a course.
