Investing in educating is an investment in the future. That’s why State Nebraska Bank & Trust has proudly supported scholarships for our community’s students as they prepare for their own future through a college education. SNB donates nearly $17,000 in scholarships each year to talented and aspiring young leaders.
Every year, SNB provides one year’s worth of tuition at Wayne State College to three outstanding seniors at Wayne High School through the SNB Community Scholarship. These scholarships help continue the education of Wayne’s students toward a bright future.
This has been a long tradition of investing in the future of our community’s youth. For more than 50 years, SNB has been providing scholarship to students at Wayne State College.
Here are some of our most recent recipients:
Established in 2018, the State Nebraska Bank & Trust FFA Scholarship recognizes two graduating seniors in FFA (Future Farmers of America) at Wayne High School who plan to study and have a career in agriculture. Recipients must demonstrate character, leadership, respect and work ethic in all aspects of life, living out the FFA Motto of “Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve.”
The scholarships are awarded at the Wayne FFA Banquet in the spring. Scholarship recipients receive $1,000 each for their college education.
Congratulations to our recipients:
Started in 2018 as an endowment, the scholarship for $1,000 is awarded to a member of the Wayne State College Women’s Soccer team who is also a resident of Nebraska.
