Our family is excited to invest in the education of the young people of Dodge City who remind us so much of myself at that age. It is a proud moment for me and my family to establish this scholarship program.” – Louie Riederer To apply, students must complete an application at: www.usd443.org/riederer – using their DCHS Gmail account.
