This scholarship was established by Emmett & Diane Leonhardt in memory of their son, Chris, a Goodrich High School graduate.  Chris’ plans of attending technical college and a career in engine technology with General Motors were cut short by his untimely death. While attending Goodrich High School, Chris completed all available courses on engine technology and his love for engines made the Leonhardt garage a busy place for Chris and his friends.

Because Emmett and Diane Leonhardt wanted to provide other Fond du Lac High School graduates with the opportunity to attend a technical college, they established this scholarship in memory of Chris.  The recipient will be selected based upon the following criteria:       

Two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to students at Moraine Park Technical College (MPTC). Scholarship recipients will be selected by MPTC.
