CLEVELAND, WI —
CLEVELAND - Recent LTC graduate, Jacob Tarnowski, of Kiel was selected to receive the Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Scholarship for the 2015-16 school year at the University of Wisconsin - Stout.

In addition, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.25, and have been accepted to UW-Stout.
