Maxine Cass and Deanne Yackle Memorial Awarded

December 20, 2017

The Maxine Cass and Deanne Yackle families established this scholarship in 2006 at Iowa Lakes Community College in memory of Maxine Cass and Deanne Yackle. 

Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of two, Deanne concentrated on what she could do during her life, not what her disability would not allow her to do. Proceeds from Deanne's published children's book, Jenny and Me, helps continue funding this scholarship. Requirements include full-time (12+ credits) or part-time (6-11 credits) enrollment, Human Services/Disability Studies program student OR have a documented disability themselves and financial need determined by FAFSA results. Award is $500 and must be used for tuition, books or fees.

The 2017-18 recipient is Jared Wurth of Remsen.
