Local student receives John Wesley Scholarship

MITCHELL — Dakota Wesleyan University welcomed 61 high school seniors from the region to campus last month for the DWU Scholarship Days and awarded scholarships.

Students with outstanding academic records, leadership potential and a commitment to service were invited to campus Feb. 2 and Feb. 16 to meet with faculty, staff and students, and further investigate the opportunities DWU has to offer academically and cocurricularly.

Trent Kingsbury of Letcher received the John Wesley Scholarship. To qualify for a John Wesley scholarship, students must have at least a 3.7 GPA and a 27/1210 ACT/SAT score. The award is for $13,000 to $14,750, and is renewable for up to 10 semesters if the student remains in good standing.
