SNB Contributes to Dean Jacobs Endowed Scholarship at WSC
October 28, 2021 – SNB was a proud supporter of the Dean Jacobs Endowed Scholarship announced at Wayne State College during homecoming festivities, where Jacobs also received the Ron Holt Civic Engagement Award.
Dean Jacobs is a 1986 graduate of Wayne State and professional tour guide. Jacobs has traversed across the globe exploring more than 50 countries. He was born in Wahoo, Neb., and spent his early years living on a farm. When he was five, his family moved to Fremont, Neb. He graduated from Wayne State College earning a degree in biology, with minors in Earth science and art. After graduating, he worked in the administration of Wayne State College as the assistant to the president before moving on to Purina Mills. Eventually this path led him to Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, where he was employed in sales and marketing for 10 years. After a great deal of soul searching, he left the security of corporate America and decided to pursue other dreams. This was the beginning of a process that would lead to a traveling adventure that would initially span 22 1/2 months and cover 28 countries.
Jacobs brings his experiences to children and adults everywhere through school presentations and keynotes that focus on the goodness of humanity and the awe of nature. By offering his audiences the opportunity to see these qualities in others and themselves, Jacobs leaves them inspired and empowered to make their world a better place in which to live.
We are proud to be one of the supporters of this new scholarship at Wayne State College in Jacobs’ honor, and hope to inspire everyone to dream big, live tall and make the world better!
