This scholarship was developed by Roger Heilert, in memory of his son, Jeff Heilert, a 1986 graduate of Waukesha South HS. Jeff was an average B+ student and athlete. Jeff worked very hard at everything that he took on. Jeff went on to graduate from the University of Notre Dame. Unfortunately, Jeff passed away in1990 from a heart arrhythmia problem. Roger has also dedicated this scholarship in memory of his wife, Judy Heilert, who passed away in 2002 after a battle with cancer. Judy was instrumental in getting the referendum passed to build Waukesha West High School. She also spearheaded the development of the Gifted and Talented Program. Through the generous deonations of many friends, this yearly scholarship was set up to carry on their memories.
