Silver Lake College is proud to announce the winners of the second annual Mother Generose Cahill Scholarship Competition.  The Mother Generose Cahill Scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship offered to two new, full-time, undergraduate students per year. The scholarship honors students who excel in the Silver Lake College traditions of academic achievement, leadership and community service.

On February 11, selected student competitors were invited to campus to participate in an essay-writing contest and interviews with a faculty panel representing the academic departments of the college. Ten students and their families attended this year, coming from Manitowoc County and other communities from across Northeastern Wisconsin.

The two students chosen as the 2011 Generose Cahill Scholars are: Mary Teresa Bettag and Elizabeth “Libby” Sara Spencer.

Mary Bettag, daughter of Mark and Teresa Bettag, from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, will graduate from Roncalli High School in the spring.  At Silver Lake College, she hopes to major in Elementary Education, and pursue her athletic interests of golf, cross country, and soccer.

Libby Spencer, daughter of Christopher and Sara Spencer of Manitowoc, Wisconsin, will graduate from Manitowoc Lutheran High School.  In the fall, she plans to study English at Silver Lake College, and hopes to be involved in volleyball and vocal and instrumental music.  She will be joining her brother, Nick Spencer, who is currently a junior at Silver Lake College.
