I graduated from Rhinelander High School in 2007.  I received a RASF scholarship for $1200.00. It was an honor to receive a RASF scholarship and be recognized, along with my peers and by the Rhinelander community.  It felt good to know the community believed in my ability to be successful going into college with an undeclared major.  

I earned my Bachelors degree while attending the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse majoring in Biochemistry, with a minor in Nutrition.  After working for a genetic testing company in Marshfield, WI, I attended Utah State University to get my Masters degree in Food Science.  

I currently live in Ann Arbor, MI.  I am working for Domino’s Pizza in Product Development, where I do consumer tests to help guide product development projects. 

Remember me?  I’m Sara Kellen.


My husband, Gene Paulson, was a 1950 graduate of RHS.  He devoted 33 years of service to the School district of Rhinelander as a math and science teacher, guidance counselor and coach.  Through the generous donations of family and friends, we are able to award a scholarship in his name to a deserving High School senior. Because of his strong ties to the community, we chose RASF to administer the scholarship, while allowing us to assist in the selection of a recipient who demonstrated the same qualities of ambition and dedication to higher learning that Gene admired in all of his students.  My family and I thank the RASF for allowing us to partner with them in this process
