Earlier this summer Citizens State Bank announced the 2016 winners of the Citizens State Bank Scholarships.

Citizens State Bank has been awarding scholarships to local students for over 27 years.  They are given in part when a student displays outstanding commitment to academic achievement, community service and extracurricular activities throughout their high school career.  Each of the 13 area winners was awarded a $500 scholarship that can be used at any two- or four-year college or university.  Winners were also invited to attend a banquet held in their honor at the Fieldstone Inn in Freeport.

This year’s scholarship winners are Nikki Bourland, Drew Groezinger, Stephanie Nadig, Rene Powers and Courtney Randecker of Stockton High School; Haley Bunker of Freeport High School; Ariel Daws, Dorthea Fiedler, Nicole Moest and Evan Voreis of Le-Win High School; Johanna Ehlbeck and Bridgett Hunziker of Aquin High School; and Hayden Keltner of Pearl City High School.
