Richard L. Hilliker turned 80 on April 9, 2018. In honor of this milestone, a gathering of friends and family took place at the Del Bar in Lake Delton, to celebrate. The evening offered a chance for storytelling and the sharing of memories. Richard’s children and their families also decided to give him a very special gift. They took advantage of one of the Foundation’s new options, Specified Term Scholarships, to create a scholarship in his honor. Next year, a scholarship in the amount of $2,000 will be given to a graduating Senior or an Alumni of Black River Falls High School who is pursuing a career in Natural Resources, Environmental Science or Conservation. The children’s intention is to offer this scholarship annually in perpetuity. Congratulations to Richard and THANK YOU to his children for commemorating the occasion by giving back to our community and for creating a Specified Term Scholarship!
