Vogt Memorial Scholarship
Hempstead High School baseball player Peter Unmacht has been awarded one of the two Grant Vogt Memorial Scholarships for 2019. The scholarship was presented to Unmacht at the Mustangs team banquet last night. A player for Wahlert High School will receive the other scholarship at the Golden Eagles team banquet this coming Thursday night.
The $2,000 scholarships honor former Wahlert and Hempstead baseball player Grant Vogt, who passed away following a 2008 airplane crash. He was an aviation student at the University of Dubuque at the time.
The coaches at Hempstead and Wahlert select the player who best represents the characteristics of Vogt.
