Throughout the month of May, area UCB employees made surprise visits to area schools to recognize and award nine high school seniors with $1000 and $500 scholarships.
The Our Community Scholarship Program has been put in place to showcase outstanding high school seniors who have given their time through non-profit and community service organizations to help make our communities a better place.
Scholarships were awarded at the Minot, Burlington and Drake locations. The Minot scholarships included an additional $500 donation to each awarded student allowing them to donate it to a local non-profit organization on their behalf.
