Class of 1966 Earns Naming Rights to Dream Alive Scholarship - Thursday, January 26, 2017

A graduating high school senior has the opportunity this spring to receive a unique Yankton College scholarship derived from a challenge proposed to the Yankton College alumni as a fun activity that was held during last summer’s 2016 All-Class Reunion. 

The distinct scholarship, valued at $1,000, was the winning result of the Dream Alive Challenge, that was geared as a fundraising effort on behalf of the Yankton College Legacy Campaign, to support the future home of Yankton College that will be housed in the historic Mead Cultural Center in several years. The most contributions ranging from July 1, 2014 to July 23, 2016 made to the Legacy Campaign by alumni per class determined the winning class who earned the naming right of a Dream Alive Scholarship.

The Class of 1966 was announced as the winning class during the reunion, with the most contributions of $55,325 made during the range of time as figures were tallied. The Class of 1957 was the second highest class to contribute with $50,885 towards the fundraising campaign. Members of the Class of 1966 who made Dream Alive donations will be permanently recognized at the future home, the Yankton College Alumni & Educational Center, at its completion.  

The entire activity was a win-win for Yankton College, providing financial support towards the Yankton College Legacy Campaign and awarding a valuable scholarship to a deserving college-bound student.  

A worthy student selected by a Scholarship Committee will receive a $1,000 scholarship to be used at an accredited college or university for the 2017-18 academic year.  He/she will be selected from applications processed through the Yankton College Scholarship Program ranked on merit and criteria.  

The goals of the Yankton College Scholarship Program are to perpetuate the College tradition of its liberal arts education, support deserving young persons who have shown outstanding promise, apply discretionary funds to a higher function and promote the memory and reputation of Yankton College.     For more information on the Yankton College Scholarship Program or the future home of Yankton College, call (605) 665-3661.
