Haskell Awards Scholarships to Children of 14 Team Members

Since the program was created in 2003, Haskell has awarded over $300,000 in scholarships to more than 130 of its team members’ college-aged children.


The Haskell Company Scholarship recently awarded $1,500 academic scholarships to the children of 14 Haskell team members for undergraduate studies at accredited colleges, universities, post-secondary vocational and trade schools.

Scholarships are awarded based on grade-point average, class rank, strength of academic program, school activities, sports involvement, outside work, educational goals and career aspirations. In addition, each candidate submits three letters of recommendation.

“We take great pride in supporting the children of our team members by assisting them in achieving their educational goals” said David Thaeler, Haskell’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “The commitment to success shown by this year’s applicants in their educational goals and their contributions to their communities through volunteerism - all during a worldwide pandemic – is truly impressive.  We recognize that education is not only essential for our continued success, but it also benefits the communities where our team members and customers live and work.”

Since the scholarship program was created in 2003, Haskell has awarded over $300,000 in scholarships to more than 130 of its team members’ college-aged children. The program was expanded in 2017 to include rising college or trade school sophomores to reward those who excelled in their first year of post-high school instruction.
