The Gene Frett Visual Art Scholarship (Pewaukee Scholarship Fund)
Pewaukee High School Visual Arts Scholarship was founded in 2007 to offer scholarships to promising PHS artists to enable their pursuit of excellence in the visual arts at the college level.
In 2012 a generous donation by Terry and Lauree Frett in honor of Terry’s dad Gene was made; thus renaming the scholarship. Gene Frett worked for Binney-Smith selling art supplies to classroom teachers. The scholarship came under the umbrella of the Pewaukee Scholarship Fund with this donation and renaming. The scholarship continues to support the studies of Pewaukee High School Visual Art students looking to continue their pursuit of excellence at the college level.
It is intended for Pewaukee High School Visual Art students.
