Sanilac County Community Foundation is pleased to announce, Gage Larson, graduate of Sandusky High School, is this year’s recipient of the Thee Valhalla Scholarship for 2020.

Gage Larson is the son of Gwen Larson and Russ Madaus. At Sandusky High School, Gage participated in band, drama, National Honor Society, (YAC) Youth Advisory Council, Key Club, and Tennis. He is very excited for his next journey at The University of Michigan.




“Valhalla” is Scandinavian for “Viking Heaven”.  Drawing from his Viking heritage and love for math, this fund was established in November of 2002 by a 26-year veteran teacher at Sandusky High School.  The donor, who passed away unexpectedly in 2009, requested that recipients of this scholarship either establish a similar fund themselves or donate back to this fund to perpetuate student interest in mathematics.

The Thee Valhalla Scholarship is administered through the Sanilac County Community Foundation.  For more information on scholarship opportunities through the Sanilac County Community Foundation, contact Melissa Anderson, Executive Director, at the Foundation office at 810-648-3634.

For Good. For Ever.
