Three To Receive Anderson Scholarships

Three area students have been selected to receive Anderson Memorial Scholarships for the upcoming spring semester. 

Brady Osksa of Plentywood will be receiving $1000. He is currently a freshman at North Dakota State University in Fargo, N.D., studying agricultural engineering. 

Sean Palmer, a 2009 graduate of Culbertson High School, will receive $750. Palmer is studying agriculture education at Montana State University - Bozeman. 

Robert Kjelshus, a 2013 graduate of Froid School, will also receive $750. He is enrolled in the diesel technology program at Montana State University - Billings.

The scholarship was set up in memory of Carlie and Ty Anderson of Froid who were killed in April 2012. Initial funds were raised at the Sheridan and Roosevelt county fair livestock sales through the sale of donated animals. Four animals were donated to the Roosevelt County Fair sale again this summer raising over $10,000 to enhance the fund. 

With these scholarships, $7,000 in educational funds will have been paid out to nine recipients. 

The scholarship is available to graduating seniors and continuing secondary education students who graduated or will graduate from a school in Roosevelt or Sheridan counties and were members of 4-H and/or FFA. 

Applications are available at the two county Extension offices and are due July 1 of the current year.  Scholarship amounts vary depending on the number of qualified applicants and the financial need.
