June 18, 2018
Starion Bank awarded the Starion Community All-Star Scholarships to area high school seniors Hailey Casavant, Amaya Grant and Max Henry.
“Hailey, Amaya and Max are leaders in their schools and are role models for younger students,” explains Chuck Neubauer, Starion market president for Bottineau, Dunseith and Rolla. “One of Starion’s core values is giving back to the community and these three share that value. We are pleased to help Hailey, Amaya and Max with college costs as recognition for their dedication in the classroom and to the community.”
Each student earned a $500 scholarship to help in their pursuit of higher education. Applications were evaluated on:
- leadership and community service,
- the essay question “In your opinion, why is it important to be involved in and give back to your community?” and
- scholastic achievement.
