Krueger earns top honors at UW-La Crosse

A Rhinelander student has earned top graduation honors at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Sara Krueger, a 2014 graduate of Rhinelander High School, received one of the Murphy Awards for Academic Excellence, which recognizes the university's top two graduating scholars as chosen by the Scholarship and Awards Committee, UW-La Crosse officials announced in a press release.

A grant from the Murphy Foundation created the awards in 1980. Marjorie P. Murphy, foundation president, cited a desire to recognize outstanding and exceptional scholastic ability, the release states.

Krueger, who graduated May 12 with a Bachelor of Science in history education and broadfield social studies education, received $1,500. She was on the Dean's List each semester.

Krueger also received a grant from the La Crosse Public Education Foundation to develop high school curriculum for the "Hear, Here" local history project, as well as an undergraduate curriculum grant for "Hear, Here" middle school curriculum development, the release states.

She also served as treasurer for Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education and received the Don and Norma Vinger Scholarship.

Krueger plans to teach middle or high school social studies in the Green Bay area, the release states.

She is the daughter of Amy and Dan Krueger of Rhinelander.
