Haylee Widman was awarded the $500 Shyler James Harr Memorial Scholarship for 2021. Her parents are Wendy Widman and Casey Hystad of Buchanan and Troy and Lindsey Widman of Anthon, Iowa. Widman plans on attending college in South Dakota where she will study veterinary science.

Harr, 15, died Sept. 26, 2010, as a result of a car accident north of Jamestown. The same accident also took the life of his best friend, Chance DeCoteau. One $500 memorial scholarship is awarded each year to a Pingree-Buchanan High School graduating senior pursuing a two- or four-year college degree.

Seniors must include a personal statement describing their future plans, in addition to an essay titled “The Importance of Road Safety: Emphasizing Driving Awareness, Defensive Driving, and the Use of Seat Belts.”
