Recent BCHS graduates receive Rumpke scholarships


Rumpke Waste and Recycling recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to 2021 Brownstown Central High School graduates Faith Harrison and Abigail Stuckwisch.

In previous years, Rumpke has awarded one scholarship to a graduating Jackson County student. This year, however, it was able to award two.

“Faith and Abigail are impressive young women who share Rumpke’s commitment to protect and preserve human health and the environment, and we are honored to recognize their achievements,” said Eric Curtis, region vice president for Rumpke.

Throughout her high school career, Harrison maintained a 4.1 grade-point average while participating in science and robotics club, National Honor Society, 4-H, tutoring and teaching piano. Following her passion to protect the planet, she plans to pursue a degree in environmental science and political science at Indiana University and hopes to become an environmental scientist.

With roots in agriculture, Stuckwisch served as a leader in Brownstown Central’s FFA chapter and recently was granted a state officer position with Indiana FFA. She also was active in 4-H , student council and played on the softball team, all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. She plans to pursue a degree in agriculture education at Purdue University.

Annually, Rumpke offers scholarships to graduating seniors in Jackson County pursuing a two- or four-year degree at an accredited institution after graduation.

In 2021, Rumpke awarded $37,000 in higher education scholarships to students throughout its service area.
