North Dakota Chapter Awards Scholarships

The Lake Agassiz 4 Curls Chapter of Fargo, N.D., awarded $1,000 in scholarships to area high school students during their annual events banquet in March.

High school seniors Travis Rheault of Fargo, N.D., and Lindsey Taft of Moorhead, Minn., each received $500 toward college. Each student wrote a winning essay about how hunting had impacted their lives, which set them apart from other applicants. The chapter used its Waterfowl Heritage Fund money to grant the scholarships.

“Because of WHF and the money our chapter raises every year, we now have the financial means to fund a scholarship that supports local kids who have outgrown our annual mentored youth hunt,” said Alec Winmill, chapter treasurer. “We are a very community-focused chapter. Everything we do is for the kids.”
