LINCOLN – The NE Chamber Foundation Monday evening announced the recipients of six scholarships named for past Nebraska Business Hall of Fame honorees.
Following is a list of recipients and their awards.
Each award totals $2,000. Students must be sophomores or juniors in a business-related field, show demonstrated leadership in extracurricular activities, and maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average to be considered.
“Our members are dedicated to welcoming our talented graduates to the fold and helping them get their education and careers started in Nebraska. These scholarships are just one way they show it,” said NE Chamber President Bryan Slone.
The students were recognized at the NE Chamber’s Annual Meeting and Nebraska Business Hall of Fame Banquet Monday, May 2.
