Lilli Grenvicz Memorial Scholarship (LGMS)
Lilli Grenvicz was a beautiful and kind woman who loved teaching, tutoring and mentoring her students. Through years of experience, she learned that there are many educational paths that can lead to a student’s success in life. Lilli would be so proud of the vocational and technical education focus supported and encouraged by this Memorial Scholarship named after her.
