Ferdinand Plaenert Scholarship

Two projects included rebuilding the capitol and constructing Central High School. Mr. Plaenert was a retail grocer in Madison and served as the President of the Wisconsin Retail Grocers Association. He served on the Madison City Council from 1933-1940, working on the widening of Park Street and the addition of Franklin Field. This scholarship was established to honor the memory of Ferdinand C. Plaenert..
