The Precht Family Scholarship was established in 1973 in memory of Theodore Precht (1876-1925) and Maria (Hulke) Precht (1876- 1953) by several of their children. The Prechts were married in 1898 at Immanuel Lutheran in Courtland, Minnesota. They had eight children (Elmer, Arthur, Hilda, Selma, Theodore, Maria, Melvin, and Delford), and 23 grandchildren. Grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends of the Precht family continue to contribute to the fund.
Scholarship winners are first-year students with a GPA of 3.75 or better who have written an essay on what the scholarship would mean to them. Winners are selected on the basis of scholarship and need, “that others might be trained for work in the church.” Renewable.
