Leo and Agnes Bauerly Memorial Scholarship*

Education was very important to Agnes and Leo Bauerly. Agnes and Leo grew up during a time when getting even a high school education was an achievement. Agnes was able to attend high school and got her diploma by living in town with a family and was their housekeeper. Leo had an entrepreneurial spirit and started a family trucking business. Agnes and Leo worked side by side until Leo’s passing. Their children grew the business that was known as Bauerly Brothers. The family and friends of Agnes and Leo have set up this scholarship, in their memory, for a deserving student who desires a higher education.
