Audrey Viste from Gibraltar Schools was selected as the 2021 winner of the Norbert Blei Memorial Scholarship. Viste was recently presented with the award by one of the Scholarship Committee’s long-time members, Pete Thelen, a well-known Door County musician. Viste said she plans to attend the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design this coming September.

The Norbert Blei Memorial Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship offered annually to a graduating Gibraltar Area Schools senior in honor of the memory of well-known, local writer Norbert Blei. Blei was a committed lifelong writing teacher, a talented writer and author, and a lover of words and the literary arts. His career began in Chicago, where he was a contemporary and friend of urban writers, newspaper columnists and media figures like Mike Royko, Studs Terkel and Harry Mark Petrakis. — By Door County PulseAugust 20th, 2021

Audrey, Norb was a masterful writer and teacher – but a talented visual artist as well. So have fun and work hard developing your own talent in illustration!
