Cyber Cafe Board presents $39,000 donation to WDC Scholarship Fund
The Cyber Cafe Board recently presented a $39,000 endowment to the Wadena-Deer Creek Scholarship Fund which will establish the “Cyber Cafe Youth Scholarship.”
“We are so grateful that the Cyber Cafe Board has chosen to continue to invest in the future of the students of Wadena-Deer Creek,” said Toni Kraska, WDC High School school counselor.
The Cyber Cafe Scholarship is intended to assist graduating seniors who have a 2.0 to 3.0 grade point average and an interest in pursuing a post-secondary degree. This spring, two or three $1,500 scholarships will be awarded to qualified graduating seniors. Awarded scholarships will be renewable upon completion of a year of study for up to four years. Applicants will be screened through the school’s scholarship committee with the final decision resting with representatives of the Cyber Cafe Board.
WDC Supt. Lee Westrum expressed his appreciation to the Cyber Cafe Board for this generous donation.
“This scholarship embodies the spirit of the Cyber Cafe and will help students that don't normally receive many scholarships," said Westrum.
The $39,000 endowment is from the dissolution of the Cyber Cafe whose mission was to provide a safe and chemical-free environment for local and area youth.
“As a board, we wanted to share this scholarship opportunity with the same students who visited the Cyber Cafe during their school years,” said Cindi McCullough, Cyber Cafe board member.
