Wells Bank Scholarships

2019 Scholarship Recipients

According to Marian Wright Edelman, “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.” In an effort to follow this directive, Wells Bank established a scholarship program in 2005 to encourage students in our community to further their education. Since its inception, the Wells Bank Scholarship Program has awarded over $253,500 to Platte, Andrew, Holt and Nodaway County Scholars. These scholarships are to be used towards enrollment at a four-year university. This year it was our honor to award scholarships to seventeen very deserving high-school seniors. The seventeen scholars were recognized at a reception held on April 23, 2019.
