Posted: May 24 2022

The Minot Area Community Foundation’s Anna S. and Harold A.C. Bergstrom Scholarship Fund has invested $16,000 in the post-secondary education of ten MLS High School Graduates.

The scholarship awards were open to all graduating Mohall-Lansford-Sherwood High School seniors who will be enrolling in a post-secondary institution following high school graduation to pursue a career important to rural North Dakota. The 2022 scholarship recipients are: Madison Moberg ($2,500); Kylie Abernathy ($2,500); Cordell Klokstad ($2,000); Ryan Morlock ($2,000); Luke Stevens ($2,000); Steele Olson ($1,000); Victoria Beha ($1,000); Joseph Savelkoul ($1,000); Jacob Undlin ($1,000); and Gannon Hall ($1,000).

Selection for scholarship awards for the Bergstrom Scholarship Fund were based on the students’ scholastic and vocational achievements/ability and their explanation of how their chosen career is important to and will benefit rural North Dakota, as this was Harold and Anna Bergstrom’s intent.

“Since inception, the fund has awarded $150,000 in scholarships. The Community Foundation is honored to carry out the wishes of Harold and Anna with the gift of education to the youth of their community through their Scholarship Fund,” remarked Jason Zimmerman, MACF President.
