Ronald Juhl, a 1959 graduate of Cedar Falls High School, has been providing a scholarship to a graduating senior for almost 20 years. Impressed with the work from the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) program, he recently revised his scholarship criteria and renamed the scholarship to the Ronald E. Juhl CAPS Scholarship, making this the first scholarship for students who have participated in CAPS during high school. Thank you Ron for your continued support of our students! Pictured: Floyd Winter, past Foundation President, awarded Walker Zey the 2019 Ronald E. Juhl Scholarship
