The Sunrise Foundation awards Scholoarships

The Sunrise Foundation Board of Directors awarded five high school students with scholarships towards their college education.  To qualify you must be a graduating senior going into healthcare or a health-related field and be from Bowman, Slope, or Harding Counties.

The 2019 Graduating Senior Scholarship winners are:  Shelby Schmalz – Nursing Program at NDSU; Maury Burke – Nursing Program at University of Mary; Abigail Bartholomay – Microbiology with an emphasis on Pre-Medicine at NDSU; Ellie Stafford – Health Science at Valley City State University; and Michaela Fischer – Pre-Mortuary Science at NDSU.

This is the first year Sunrise Foundation awarded healthcare scholarships to graduating seniors.  The money that was donated through Giving Hearts Day this winter is being used to fund these scholarships.  Our foundation wants to give back to the community by helping students in our service area.

Congratulations to all the scholarship winners!
