Students at Sanborn Central have been successful in their pursuit of obtaining scholarships to technical schools through the generous scholarship fund established by T. Denny Sanford.  This year, two Sanborn Central graduates received full-ride scholarships from Mitchell Technical Institute in separate areas: Weston Baysinger, who will pursue a degree in welding, and Koby Larson, who will pursue a degree in telecommunications.  They will begin their degree programs this fall.

This opportunity has been made possible by T. Denny Sanford.   The Build Dakota Scholarship is a highly competitive full ride scholarship offered to the best and the brightest students attending a South Dakota technical institution entering high need workforce areas. The scholarship pays for not only tuition, but also fees, books, tools, laptops, and any other requirements for the program equaling a possibility of $24,000.

The SCSF is pleased to announce that each of the 2018 Sanborn Central graduates who have attended Sanborn Central for at least seven years will  receive a full scholarship in the amount of $2,800 from the Dennis Ross “GOAL – Get On And Learn” and the Tanna Kingsbury “Believe” Scholarships, to be used to further their education at any accredited institution. Those attending Sanborn Central for less than seven years will receive a pro-rated amount of the full scholarship.

The Foundation would like to thank those who continue to send memorials and donations so that scholarship awards can keep increasing to help graduates pursue their dreams. Currently, there is $400,000 in a perpetual fund within the South Dakota Community Foundation in Pierre, and the scholarships are funded by the interest earned on this fund.  Congratulations, graduates, and good luck!
