Cooper is the 2019 recipient of the Foundation Stone Scholarship.
The son of Jason and Kari Buchholtz, Cooper is unabashedly proud of his hometown, Lake Mills, saying, "I love my town. I have met so many encouraging and successful people here. Lake Mills has taught me tradition and a true sense of community."
He considers his biggest accomplishment to be his acceptance to the Lake Mills City Council. Second to that was being elected as the President of his high school class.
Perhaps, though, one of the most consequential decisions Cooper made may have been to become a big brother to Caleb and Payton, the young son and daughter of a fellow Lake Millsian who unexpectedly died in February of 2019. "I never expected at 18 years of age [that] I would get another little brother and sister." Cooper has the opportunity to make a lasting and positive impact on two young people who need connection and care.
Cooper will enter the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire to study Biochemistry with a medical objective of becoming a Nurse Practitioner. Following his graduation from UW Eau Claire, he also intends to volunteer with Doctors Without Boarders, an international humanitarian medical non-governmental organisation of French origin best known for its projects in conflict zones and in countries affected by endemic diseases.
