New Haven High School Counselor Doug Peirick presents Kyle Ruediger, recipient of both the Scheer Memorial And Langenberg Family Scholarships.
NEW HAVEN, Mo. - New Haven High School senior Kyle Ruediger is this year's recipient of New Haven High School’s oldest privately endowed scholarship: the Scheer Memorial Scholarship as well as the 8th annual Langenberg Family Scholarship. Ruediger becomes the first ever to receive both scholarships.
Kyle, the son of Rick and Pam Ruediger, received the scholarship worth $5,000 at the school's 109th annual commencement exercise last Friday night. The Scholarship is payable during a four year period. This is the 25th year for the scholarship honoring the memory of the late Clara and Milford F. Scheer and is funded by the Milford F. Scheer Charitable Trust.
The family owned and operated Scheer Transfer Company, a New Haven based trucking firm until the company ceased operation in 1984. The firm was in business for nearly 55 years during which time they were active in many civic projects. Clara Scheer died on Dec. 20, 1976, and Milford Scheer died on Dec. 31, 1989.
Representatives of the trust, along with a committee of faculty and school board members, selected Kyle for the award based on academic performance and potential, interest in continuation of his education, character, and leadership.
The Langenberg family set up the scholarship fund to give the students at New Haven High school the opportunity to continue their education at a community college, college or university that leads to an academic degree. The scholarship is worth $5000 and is payable over a four year period.
Kyle was active in FBLA, FCA, National Honor Society, varsity basketball for 3 years, and varsity baseball for 4 years. Kyle was named 1st Team All Conference in both basketball and baseball. He is also a member of the Academic All Conference teams.
Kyle is planning to continue his education at the University of Missouri - Columbia where he plans to pursue a degree in Civil Engineering.
