The North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation (NDSF) named eight 2017 scholarship winners during the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association’s (NDSA) 88th Annual Convention & Trade Show.
The NDSF awarded $500 Legacy scholarships to Sarah Freitag of Bowman, N.D.; Stacia Hopfauf of Mandan, N.D.; Cierra Dockter of Medina, N.D.; and Kaitlyn Peterson of Bismarck, N.D.; a $500 Junior Scholarship to Emily Hauck of Forbes, N.D.; a $500 Endowment Scholarship to Codi Schaper of Grassy Butte, N.D.; a $500 Tokach Angus Ranch Memorial Scholarship to Sydni Schmidt of Solen, N.D.; and a $750 Jack and Vander Reich Memorial Scholarship to Jacob Hauck of Forbes, N.D.
Schaper is a 4.0 college sophomore pursuing a major in biomedical animal science with a pre-vet emphasis at NDSU. The daughter of Tim and Julie Schaper hopes to work as a large-animal veterinarian and to own a cattle ranch. Schaper has continued the active extracurricular load she carried in high school into her college years, where she is a part of the Collegiate CattleWomen and Pre-Vet Club and volunteers at a therapeutic riding center.
The NDSF will be awarding scholarships again in 2018. Information can be found at www.ndstockmen.org under the “Foundation” tab. The application deadline is March 1.
