Clara Nemr waiting to accept her scholarship award at the Performing Arts Center.

The MCPASD Education Foundation was honored to award five scholarships to graduating MHS seniors on Scholarship Night at the Performing Arts Center on May 15.

We are happy to announce Clara Nemr as one of two recipients of a $500 Mighty Middleton Scholarship.

Nemr plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison and major in neurobiology, and apply to medical school after college.

“I don’t want to pursue medicine just to help people; I want to pursue medicine because I want to go to developing countries and practice there,” Nemr explained. “I want to be able to take the education that I received and use it in places where the education and the practice can be lacking.”

Her academic achievements include being named an AP Scholar and to Middleton High School’s honor roll. Her extracurricular activities include National Honor Society, Student Council, marching band, theater, Key Club and Science Alliance. Her community service includes mentoring a special needs student through The Penguin Project as well as volunteering on a mission trip to Kenya and in UW’s Setaluri Lab.

The Mighty Middleton Scholarship was established in 2019 to support MCPASD graduates who intend to devote their careers to helping others in healthcare and related professions. This scholarship was inspired by Theresa and Don Roepsch, whose granddaughters attend MCPASD schools.

Please join the Education Foundation in congratulating Nemr on her scholarship and in wishing her all the best as she continues her education!
