Stacy Goedeke Scholarship Established and Awarded

The Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas is pleased to announce the establishment and awarding of the Stacy Goedeke Scholarship. The scholarship was established by her family in memory of Stacy through memorial contributions following her death in 2017.

A graduate of Kansas State University College of Agriculture, Stacy received a Bachelor of Science degree in Milling Science and Management in 2008. 

The Stacy Goedeke Scholarship

The Stacy Goedeke Scholarship fund was established to support an individual pursuing a grain-science career who may not have qualified for other achievement-based scholarships. Stacy was very proud to be a KSU Wildcat and her degree in Milling Science and Management was the foundation of a successful career. 

Stacy was an independent, free spirit who succeeded in living life to its fullest. She loved to travel, visit her friends and family, and never met an adventure she did not want to experience. She loved rural life and had a special love for Kansas sunsets and prairies. During her youth, Stacy was an avid 4-H’er.  Priority for the scholarship recipients is given to individuals who can demonstrate a passion for grain science, a strong work ethic, community involvement, and moral character.  

Scholarship funds will be distributed from the Stacy Goedeke Scholarship Fund through the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas.

Inaugural recipient

The first recipient of the Stacy Goedeke Scholarship is Mardi Traskowsky.  Mardi will be a third-year Milling Science and Management Operations student at Kansas State University this fall. She is currently interning in Ayer, Massachusetts. Mardi is from Herrington, KS.

Mardi was a natural choice for the Stacy Goedeke Scholarship based on her history of hard work, activity in 4-H, community involvement, and academic status.
