The AgStar Fund for Rural America, the corporate giving program of AgStar Financial Services, is pleased to award Erin Wicker, a senior at Kimball Area High School, a $1,000 educational scholarship.
The AgStar Fund awards $20,000 in scholarships to 20 graduating seniors every year. Students within AgStar’s 69-county service area in Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin are eligible. Four students from each of AgStar’s five regions are chosen to receive a scholarship.
National Honor Society members Brad Meis, Mathias Hennen, Kendra Atherton, Jon and Megan Bisila, Advisor Stangle, Stacy Hurrle, Shelby Schiefelbein, Hannah Zipoy, Alissa Jones, and Kaylee Petty were out doing ditch pick up and yard work for volunteer hours. The Club gave hours of their time as a donation to the Dollars for Scholars Gala held last
month. The winning bidder of their time was very pleased with the work they did in spring power-cleaning of their yard. Thanks so very much for your time! Photo courtesy Vanessa Schlueter.
