Duane G. & Helen Laubach Memorial Scholarship
The Duane G. & Helen Laubach Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019 by family and friends to honor his contributions and legacy to the development of Henderson. Mr. Laubach graduated from Basic Academy in 1950, after moving to Henderson in 1942 with his parents. Upon graduating from Basic Academy, Mr. Laubach enrolled at the University of Nevada, Reno, as a business and accounting major. After one semester, Mr. Laubach enlisted in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and fought heroically. He then returned to UNR to graduate with honors. In 1957, Mr and Mrs. Laubach moved back to Henderson to begin his accomplished real estate career until his retirement in 1998. He was professional, dedicated and influenced much of the development and growth of Henderson. Each year, one senior is selected and awarded $500 to encourage and assist them in achieving their goals as successful entrepreneurs.
