Make a Donation to the Olivia M. Dahl Scholarship Fund
Each year WATG provides scholarships to students who wish to expand their learning in an area of interest or passion. Olivia Dahl was one of WATG's scholarship recipients. Olivia died on September 18, 2016, from injuries sustained in a small airplane crash in Peninsula State Park, Fish Creek, Wisconsin, on a return flight home from piloting lessons in Green Bay.
Sixteen-year-old senior Olivia was a gifted student at Gibraltar High School, and enjoyed writing, drawing and photography. She participated in band as a bassoonist, Great Books, Math Team, and Ecology Team. She was a College Board Advanced Placement Scholar with Honors, and with Distinction.
To honor her memory and her passion for learning the Wisconsin Association for Talented and Gifted will provide a scholarship each year in Olivia’s name. This scholarship will give preference to students applying for a scholarship to WCATY classes, as Olivia was challenged by and benefited from many WCATY classes over the years.
