  • Harry S. Himmel Scholarship: One $500 scholarship

The Harry S. Himmel Scholarship was established in Harry’s memory in 1989 by friends and family. Himmel joined Kiwanis in 1928 and eventually served in many leadership positions at various levels—including president of the Kiwanis International Foundation for 10 years. Harry was known for his extensive involvement in his community and in charitable causes, and for the impact he made on so many individuals. This scholarship remains in his memory to help young people achieve their goals.

  • Cunat International Scholarship: One $2,500 scholarship

While serving as 1992–93 governor of the Illinois-Eastern Iowa Kiwanis District, Brian Cunat and his wife, Miki, established a scholarship fund to recognize and support Kiwanis-family members setting out to make a difference in people’s lives. The Cunats believe that life goals should include helping others and making the world a better place for all. With that in mind, the Cunats expanded their scholarship program in 2010 to award $2,500 to a Key Club member who is beginning his/her life to benefit others.
