2014 Scholarship Recipientsí Norwegian Roots Revealed!
Sean Cortney's mother's grandfather,
Torvald Kjolvic, was a Norwegian immigrant
originally from the island of Fogn, Norway.
In the summer of 2011 his mother's cousin,
Bjarne and family, made a visit to Las Vegas.
Sean has done a lot of research to learn the
truth of his Norwegian Blood. His hope is to
teach advanced high school history courses
and in his lectures provide Norway with the
attention it deserves, a country he was not
taught about in high school!
Amanda Fehr's mother, Elin, came to
America in her twenties from Norway. Her
father, Eric, is also Norwegian. Amanda's
mother has been a Sons of Norway member
for 17 years. Many of us remember Amanda
growing up in our lodge. She and her sister
loved to go in our Viking ship. They were
wonderful helpers at our Lutefisk dinners.
Amanda is an excellent student. We all wish
her the best in the fall in college.
Nathan Gifford's application arrived in a
large manila envelope with a large colored
Norwegian flag on the outside of the
envelope, what a thrill to see it. Nathan's
maternal great grandmother was Norwegian,
Lily Kala Amundson. He also enclosed a
beautiful copy of her baptismal certificate.
Nathan is active in the Youth group at
Mountain View Lutheran Church, played
football at Centennial Highs School for four
years. He will be attending Concordia
Lutheran College in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
His career goal is to be become an
accountant. He plans to play football at
college. We talked about the change for him
with the winter in Michigan.
We hope to raise more money for scholarships in 2016. If you wish to make a tax-deductible donation, please make out a check to the Vegas Viking Lodge, Sons of Norway Scholarship Fund and mail to:
