Dave Falk of the Jamestown Dollars for Scholars attended the ninth annual North Dakota Dollars for Scholars Conference held in Bismarck on Oct. 15.

Chapter representatives learned about volunteer recruitment, investments and fund raising. For attending the conference, the chapter received a $1,000 donation from Bank of North Dakota.

North Dakota Dollars for Scholars has 70 community chapters in the state. Bank of North Dakota provides a state director and operational support for local chapters. Since the first chapter was established in Grand Forks in 1962, Dollars for Scholars chapters in North Dakota have raised $34 million and helped 26,390 students.

This year, the local chapter plans to distribute $20,000 to local high school students and recent graduates attending college. Events such as the Applebee’s Pancake fundraiser increase the funds available for the students. Individuals and families may donate directly to the local chapter by going to jamestown.dollarsforscholars.org or by mailing a check to Jamestown Dollars for Scholars, PO Box 269, Jamestown, ND 58402-0269.

Members of the Jamestown board are Dave Falk, Casey Henderson, Elaine Hegland, Casey Stoudt, Robert Toso, David Smette, Pat Nygaard, Robert Lech, Donna Schmitz, DeAnn Ament and Sally Ost.
