This is such an incredibly generous group! The 2015 scholarship donations set yet another new record – just over $5000! That translated to 5 scholarships in the amount of $1000 each.
On behalf of the alumni committee, I want to extend the sincerest thank you to each and every one of our donors! Your generosity is further proof that Cedar and all the people who grew up here are special beyond words!
Our 2015 scholarship recipients:
Amber Armatys Amber attends Wayne State College in Wayne. After 2 years, she will transfer to the UNMC College of Nursing in Norfolk where she will pursue a Bachelor of Science in nursing.
Ryan Smith Ryan is studying computer engineering at the South Dakota School of Mines in Rapid City, S.D.

This is a source of pride for all our alumni. I seriously doubt there are many groups this small with a scholarship program as robust as ours. I salute every one of our donors – every dollar you contributed helped to make 2015 yet another record breaking year. Thank you so much!
