Past Scholarship Winners
I will be attending Peru State College in the fall semester of 2016. I will be majoring in Wildlife Ecology with a minor in Biology. I hope to use these degrees to continue into the area of game and parks or other wildlife professions. I have always enjoyed being outdoors and some of my favorites activities include hunting and fishing. I would like to come back to the Sandhills area after college and work either at the Valentine National Wildlife Refuge, or the Halsey National Forest. While attending Peru State College I will also be participating on their football team. In the future I would like to help with coaching youth sports, because they have been such an important part of my life.
