The James K. Huhn Memorial Science Scholarship was established in his honor in 2020 by his family: wife Karen, daughter Rebecca (Cox), and sons Steve and Todd.
Jim Huhn (1940-2018) found his calling as a high school science teacher. A devout Christian, he found evidence of God’s presence in science, and he let his studies of the wonders of Creation lead him closer to God.
He taught at Watertown High School in Wisconsin for 36 years before retiring as their physics teacher and science department chair.
From 1963 onward, Jim was an active member of the Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers, receiving many honors from the organization. He was a highly honored presenter, and young teachers often sought him out as a mentor.
He was actively involved in the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, his local Conservation Club, the Archery Club, and his Best Sound business. He also served on the St. Mark’s Church Council as an elder.
“Over his decades of service, James inspired countless students,” his family said. “Before his passing, we discussed how to best honor his work, and we decided to establish this scholarship so he could continue to inspire others.”
James K. Huhn Memorial Science Scholarship recipients are students majoring in secondary science education (chemistry, physics, or life science) who demonstrate scholastic merit.
