After retiring from a career in business, Ken Renau turned to writing as an outlet for his wit and intelligence. He wrote an occasional feature column, "First Person", in the Courier-Journal from 1987-1998, and had articles published periodically in Louisville Magazine, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Kentucky Monthly, and various health and sports magazines. Several of his published works can be read in the "Article Archive" of this website.
ANNOUNCING THE 2014 RENAU FOUNDATION
The Renau Foundation received a record number of entries this year, and the quality was at such a high level, the Foundation and the judges from Louisville Magazine decided that it would be appropriate to award more than just one winner in each category. As a result, there was a tie for First in the Non-Fiction category and two Runner-Up winners in the Fiction category. The 2014 Renau Foundation Scholarship winners are as follows:
Winner, Fiction Category ($5,000 per school year):
“Collected Works of Prose”; Tristan Krebs, St. Francis High School
Winners, Non-Fiction Category ($5,000 per school year):
