Bret Lucca (center) was recently awarded the Trudi Coots Memorial Scholarship. Former Genoa-Kingston graduates can apply for the scholarship once they've reached their junior year of college and are slated to enter the education field. Lucca graduated from Northern Illinois University and is enrolled in a master's program. He was recently hired to be the new physical education teacher at North Elementary School in Sycamore. Lucca is pictured with teachers Carol Hencken (left), scholarship chair, and Tiffany Thurlby, scholarship committee member.
