Scholarship Winners 1976-1986

In the second decade of the banquet, a new scholarship sponsor was added when Aid Association for Lutherans (AAL) offered to dedicate scholarships in the memory of banquet founders George Klose and Casey Roemer.  Appleton State Bank became Valley Bank in 1975 and they continued their committment to the Red Smith scholoarships under their new name.  AAL and Valley Bank would alternate between the public and private schools each year with their awards. The scholarship amount was raised from $300 to $350 during these years!
