Lakeland welcomes three Sheboygan County Scholars

Lakeland University will welcome its ninth class of Sheboygan County Scholars to campus this fall.

This program retains some of the area's most promising young people and prepares them to assume future leadership positions within the region.

The Class of 2027 includes:

  • Danielle Damrow, Howards Grove High School.
  • Taytum Theobald, Howards Grove High School.
  • Joshua Wensink, Oostburg High School.

Scholars are selected as part of a competitive process and receive a full-tuition scholarship to attend Lakeland. The program fosters the intellectual development, professional networking and leadership skills of the next generation of Sheboygan County's corporate, professional and civic leaders.

Damrow plans to study secondary education with a focus in mathematics and play basketball. She has served as an academic tutor and hopes to continue in that role. Her goal is to inspire adolescents to participate in both their school and community by serving as a student government advisor and help children develop a love of athletics by serving as a youth coach. She volunteers as a Sunday School helper at St. Paul’s Lutheran and plans to volunteer as a Sunday School teacher at her church. During high school she was a member of the basketball, cross country, volleyball and softball teams and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She is also on the National Honor Society (vice president), Student Council (president) and St. Paul's Church Youth Group. She has worked as a teacher’s assistant among other roles.

Theobald plans to major in business administration with a management emphasis. She has two twin autistic siblings and after graduation hopes to partner with The Autism Therapy Group in Milwaukee to build a facility to serve families in Sheboygan County. A captain and all-conference player for Howards Grove, she plans to play soccer for the Muskies. She was also student of the month in chemistry. She worked as a teachers aid with special needs students and spent summers in various roles at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park, Sturgeon Bay, Wis. She also volunteered for the Howards Grove Center of the Arts.

Wensink plans to major in business administration and build skills and contacts through Lakeland’s Cooperative Education program. He plans to stay local after graduation working in business, ideally taking over the family business, Wensink Heating in Oostburg. A captain and all-conference football player at Oostburg, he plans to play football for the Muskies. He was also a member of the wrestling and track and field teams, as well as theatre, service club and student council leadership board. He was a volunteer for the youth football camp, led Bible study for Gibbsville Church and was a math tutor for middle school students.
