About THE Ray and Judy Porten and the ScholarshiP

Ray and Judy Porten exemplified the meaning of community. During a period of 22+ years Ray and Judy Porten's efforts touched the lives of thousands of children from Wauconda High School.


Ray and Judy Porten met while attending WHS and soon after graduation they married and had six children who all attended the Wauconda schools. During the years their children attended school and beyond, both Ray and Judy dedicated countless hours to the Wauconda Boosters and towards fund-raising for various projects at WHS such as: having lights installed on the athletic field so games could be played at night, putting in a new press box, and to help ensure that students from junior varsity through varsity could enjoy athletic activities. Ray and Judy shared a passion for their family and for the kids of WHS. 

Established in 2013, The Ray and Judy Porten Memorial Scholarship, with support of friends and members of the community will award a scholarship to two university, community college or vocational-bound high school seniors based on demonstrated academic achievement, athletic participation, community volunteer efforts and proven leadership qualities in and out of school.
