In Memory of Mr. W. R. Rochelle, Cohn High School principal, the 2018 scholarship is named the W. R. Rochelle alumni scholarship.


Mr. Rochelle was principal from 1939 – 1965. He helped to open avenues of fame for some students and for some teachers, though he never made any bid or immortality for himself. His responsibilities were demanding, but he always took time to talk to the students. He was sensitive to the needs of each individual and devoted his life to teaching, guiding and helping young people. He secured countless scholarships for ambitious college students and assisted others in securing employment.
