The WPS Charitable Foundation selected 26 students to receive the Ray Koenig Memorial Scholarship for 2019. The students, who were drawn at random from a pool of qualified applicants, will each receive a one-year scholarship for $1,250.

The scholarship fund is named for Ray Koenig, the first president of WPS Health Solutions. Since 1988, the WPS Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $1,000,000 to 368 children of employees.
