We are proud of our new Executive Director Addia Wuchner for establishing a new program of the RTL Educational Foundation of Ky— the ProLife Legacy Founders Scholarship Fund!

Four $1,000 scholarships for graduating seniors who seek to advance in four academic areas will be awarded this spring and in coming years. The areas of study are:

  • Law / Political Science
  • Medicine / Healthcare / Nursing
  • Education / Media and Communications
  • Trade and Technical

The scholarships are given in honor of Margie Montgomery on whose shoulders we stand, Judge Robert F. Greene, Esq., and Paul J. Kissel (dec.), a Ky architect.

The Donald C. Wintersheimer Memorial Scholarship honors this Ky Supreme Court Justice who served 24 years. (dec. Feb. 2021). Justice Wintersheimer was the most prolific opinion writer in Kentucky history, averaging over 50 opinions each year. Addia shares from an Opinion he penned regarding a case involving quality of life before the Ky Supreme Court, so you may appreciate the merits of the Donald Wintersheimer Memorial Scholarship:

That reasoning would place the courts in the position of affirming that death, or nonexistence, is preferable to life. The argument that there is a kind of ‘quality of life’ ethic is without any merit… If logically extended, it could produce a culture that condones the extermination of the weak by the strong or the more powerful.

Who is Paul J. Kissel, KY architect and why was a scholarship named after him? Also it seems that there are other areas of study a student may be pursuing which are not listed. Does that disqualify their entry to the Scholarship Award for example Structural or Architectural Engineering?
