Scholarship set up for Wartburg wrestler


Friends of two-time Wartburg wrestling national champion Aaron Wernimont have set up a scholarship fund in his name.

Wernimont died about a week ago. He woke up the morning of March 13 and was gasping for air. His wife Kahri, also a former Wartburg athlete, called 911. He died on the way to the hospital.  

The money from the scholarship will go to students at Wernimont's high school, Pocahontas Area Community High.
