02 Jun Unison Bank awards $3,000 to scholarship recipients from 2022-23 school year
Three graduating high school seniors throughout the region have been selected as the $1,000 Unison Bank Spirit Scholarship recipients for the 2022-23 academic year. Recipients were selected from the service areas for each of Unison Bank’s North Dakota branch locations. This year’s recipients were Ethan Igl, Paige Hulm and Charles Herr.
Jamestown High School senior, Ethan Igl, was selected as one of the bank’s scholarship recipients. Igl plans to attend the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minn., to major in Electrical Engineering.
Eligible applicants included Jamestown, N.D., Linton, N.D., Wishek, N.D., and surrounding area high school graduating seniors who are, or whose parent(s) or guardian(s) are customers of Unison Bank and planning to attend a college, university, vocational or technical post-secondary school. Each applicant’s scholarship, letter of recommendation and transcript were graded by the Unison Bank Scholarship Committee.
“I greatly appreciate this scholarship to help me financially towards furthering my education,” said recipient, Paige Hulm. “I am extremely grateful towards Unison Bank for their support not only through the scholarship, but throughout all of my years in Linton. They’ve been a huge part of giving back to the community.”
Hulm, a senior at Linton High School, was selected as a recipient of the 2022-23 Spirit Scholarship. With the $1,000 scholarship, Hulm plans to attend Valley City State University in Valley City, N.D., for their exercise science program with hopes of later continuing her education to become a chiropractor.
The third scholarship recipient selected was Charles Herr, a senior at Wishek High School.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be a recipient of this scholarship. Not only is it an investment in my education, but in my future as well,” said Herr. “I am confident that it will open doors to new experiences and help me achieve my goals.”
Herr plans to attend Bismarck State College in the fall to acquire a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning certificate. Once Herr obtains his certificate, he plans to further his education for an associate degree in applied sciences.
Unison Bank President & CEO, Kelly Rachel, said, “Thank you to all the students who applied for our scholarship. This year’s applicants were exemplary from their volunteer work and community involvement to their grades and the impact that they have made in the lives of those they are around.”
