Fund Story

Richard was a 1968 graduate of New Carlisle High School. He grew up in Hudson Township and enjoyed living near the lake and helping in his family’s business in Hudson Lake. Upon graduation, he received a scholarship that allowed him to attend college and change his future. This scholarship is established to help future New Prairie High School students receive that same opportunity to pursue their dream of a college education.

The Richard and Tracy Krause Scholarship Fund was founded in 2018.
