Proud Sholarship Recipients
2013 - Our lodge awarded $3,000 in scholarships this year. Vegas Viking awarded $500 scholarships to six outstanding Clark County 2013 high school graduates. Besides earning top grade-point averages, they were chosen on the basis of well-written essays on their Norwegian heritage, impressive involvement in extra-curricular activities and financial need.
The awardees are Jessica Reed, Michael Kelso, Amanda Stenberg and Michael Mortenson. The two other scholarship winners were not present, Kyle Amundson and Ricardo Sevilla
Funds for the scholarships came from lodge fund-raising events (including Granny’s Attic at the holiday bazaar, the Community Lutheran Church craft fair, garage sales and the lutefisk dinner) and private gifts. "We are pleased to be able to help these very worthy students," says scholarship committee co-chair Suzan Sibert." We just wish we could help more — each of them and more like them — because the need increases each year, "says co-chair Linda Kristensen. The other scholarship committee members are Heidi Kasama, Mike Hagen, John Holien and Alice Salvesen.
How the applicants expressed appreciation for their Norwegian heritage was another factor in their selection.
We hope to raise more money for scholarships in 2014. If you wish to make a tax-deductible donation, please make out a check to the Vegas Viking Sons of Norway Scholarship Fund and mail to:
