Throughout the month of May, area UCB employees made visits to area schools to recognize and award 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 and Burlington scholarships included an additional $500 donation to each awarded student allowing them to donate it to a local non-profit organization on their behalf.
The local scholarship recipients and selected non-profits were:
Minot: Easlyn Grosche ($1000) – Prairie Grit Sports
