BEND – Aspiring to higher education goals, 117 recipients of the Wayne Stewart Scholarship received funds to help them on that path.
Renee Boe of U.S. Bank’s Private Client Group in Bend announced this year’s total distribution amount is $581,000.
Last year, $590,900 was distributed to 121 individuals. The amount depends on how the stock market performs.
The scholarships are a bonus to Grant County students of all ages who qualify, thanks to the late benefactors Wayne Stewart of Dayville and his son Eminger Stewart III who made provisions in their wills for a perpetual education fund to be set up upon their death.
In her emailed announcement Boe added, “Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the Canyon Creek fire.”
