Regal Ware, the Kewaskum, Wisconsin-based direct seller of quality cookware, recently awarded its annual J.O Reigle Scholarships to two deserving Kewaskum students. Named in honor of the company’s founder, the late J.O. Reigle, the scholarship program was established in 1963 to recognize the outstanding scholastic achievements of one or more graduating high school seniors in Kewaskum. To be eligible for the $18,000 J.O. Reigle Scholarship, a student must have attended Kewaskum High School for at least the previous two years, and maintained at least a “B” average for the first three-and-a-half years of high school.
The recipients of this year’s scholarship awards were Jacob Loehr and Hailey Herriges. Loehr and Herriges are seniors at Kewaskum High School and will each receive $4,500 per year toward a four-year college program.
Loehr, the son of Bob and Kathy Loehr of Kewaskum, plans to attend UW–Madison to study mechanical engineering. Herriges is the daughter of James and Tina Herriges of Allenton. She will major in physical therapy at Carroll University.
Regal Ware is a privately held direct seller with distributors in more than 70 countries across the globe. Regal Ware cookware is sold under a variety of brand names through direct-to-the-consumer channels, including Saladmaster, Kitchen Fair, Lifetime, Classica, Royal Queen and American Kitchen.
