Charlie & Kathy Schroeder

Hans Schroeder loved the outdoors and adventure. He loved snowboarding, skiing, riding his motorcycle, and hiking. In 2001 he found his professional calling in the wind turbine business. Hans was a site manager for Suzlon, a wind turbine company, and was known for his innovative ideas. At his site, Hans developed 97 changes to the turbines, of which 92 were adopted company-wide.  He was quickly promoted within the company. In 2010, Hans was involved in a motorcycle accident that took his life.  His parents, Charlie and Kathy Schroeder, established this memorial scholarship to provide a boost to others like Hans, who choose a life outdoors at the thrilling height of more than 230 feet. This scholarship is designated for a student in the wind turbine program.
