“All roads that lead to success have to pass through hard work."
The H2O Foundation Scholarship was established in January of 2018 with the thought of giving back to deserving students aspiring to attend college.
The H2O Foundation itself was established in 2016 with the intention of giving back to local communities and its mission statement is simple; Have Heart, Have Hope = Opportunities. The board members are Jim MacLellan, Aaron Rasmussen, Mark Svozil, and Eric Engelke. Jim, Mark and Eric are Brunswick Residents and Brunswick High School graduates while Aaron resides locally in Wadsworth. Over the past few years, H2O has impacted hundreds of local families and individuals in several different ways. Our Board Members have been blessed with being surrounded by individuals that want to be part of a culture of giving back to the community and others. Our thought would be that through our scholarship, we can impact 4 students’ lives in the same manner.
