Jonathan Krueger ‘12 Experiential Education Fund deadline is April 26

Jonathan Krueger ‘12, a “lifer” at Maumee Valley Country Day School, was a beloved student and leader.

He was team co-captain of the MV basketball team his junior and senior years, helping to lead his team to victory after victory. His buzzer-beating, 3-point shot for the win against a rival school may be the most defining moment of his high school basketball career and will forever be remembered by his teammates, coaches and fans.

Throughout his time at MV, he became known as "the man behind the camera," always taking pictures and capturing moments. He studied photography and never missed an opportunity to photograph people, places and things. Jonathan believed that education is more than what you learn in class.

The family hopes that this scholarship fund gives students, for years to come, opportunities to continue learning by doing. They will approach every moment as Jonathan would, with a sense of adventure, a balance of humor and focus, and a passion and love for the work that they do.
