This scholarship was established by Cliff's family and his wife, Mary, in his memory and in honor of the family's commitment to education. Mr. Rohde’s career in education included teaching assignments at Rosendale High and Roosevelt Junior High. He then became principal at Sabish Junior High and helped open Theisen Junior High where he served as principal until his retirement in 1989. Cliff has been referred to as the "Founding Father" of Theisen and always went the "extra yard" to maintain and improve education in Fond du Lac. Upon Mary’s death on April 7, 2008, the children of Cliff and Mary Rohde chose to continue this scholarship in their parents' names.Two scholarships will be awarded annually: one to a graduating senior from Fond du Lac High School and one to a graduating senior from St. Mary’s Springs Academy both with plans to major in education. The high school principal and counselors will select the recipient of this award.
