We are proud to announce this year’s recipients of Thomas M. Knoll Memorial Scholarships. This year, three scholarships were awarded to the following:
Katie Dickneite is the daughter of Andre & Vicki Dickneite of Westphalia. Katie was a May graduate of Fatima High School in Westphalia and plans to attend Truman State University in Kirksville this fall where she will study Biology.
Matthew Honse is the son of Sherry and Garry Honse of Vienna. He graduated this spring from Vienna High School in Vienna. His plans are to attend East Central College in Union to study Graphic Design.

TMK Memorial scholarship applicants must have a parent or legal guardian working at Quaker or be an employee themselves. Katie’s father works in Quaker’s Commercial Sales Division and has been with the company for 18 years. Matthew’s mother has worked in Quaker’s Vinyl Production Division for nearly 11 years. Hailey’s father has been employed at Quaker for 31 years as a Product Design Engineer. Katie and Hailey are also working part-time at Quaker this summer.
The TMK Memorial Scholarship Fund was created in 2004, in memory of the late Tom Knoll, a co-owner of Quaker Window Products at the time of his passing. To date, close to $50,000 in scholarship money has been awarded to local high school seniors in their pursuit of higher education. Quaker employs more than 500 people at its main manufacturing plant in Freeburg and its glass plant in Maries County, and is one of the leading manufacturers of windows & doors in the United States.
