Wilson Scholarships awarded
Jamestown College has awarded the prestigious, full tuition Wilson Scholarship to two high school seniors.
Destiny Winkler, Valley City, and Michael Anderson, Morris, Minn., were selected among students participating in an on-campus interview, essay and examination process in November. Another Wilson Scholarship session will be held in February.
The Wilson Scholarship provides full tuition renewable for four years and was established in memory of the late Dr. John L. Wilson and his wife, Palma. Dr. Wilson served on the College’s Board of Trustees from 1957 until his death in 1983. Recipients of the scholarship must demonstrate commendable academic and leadership skills.
“We are excited to have these students on our campus,” says Tena Lawrence, dean of enrollment management. “They are bright and determined, and they will thrive at Jamestown College.”
