Legacy Scholarship Recipients Announced

The Dana College Foundation Board is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2023 Legacy Scholarships. Each of the two recipients will receive $5,000.00 toward their tuition as they enroll this fall.

Paige Miller
Paige is graduating from Duchesne Academy in Omaha, Nebraska. Her connection to Dana College comes via her grandfather, Paul Barnett, a Dana alum. Her mother, Rebecca Miller, also attended Dana. Paige intends to study Biology/Biomedical Sciences at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa.

Catherine Reed
Catherine is graduating from Freeman High School in Adams, Nebraska. She is the daughter of Carrie (Larkin) Reed, a Dana alum and former staff member. Catherine intends to study Biology/Chemistry/Pre-Med at Hastings College in Hastings, Nebraska.

“We received 19 applications from students across the country,” said Bob Coffey, Foundation President. “It’s always a difficult choice, given the high quality and preparedness of these students. It’s also amazing how they have learned so much about Dana from their parents and grandparents, and how they seek to have a similar college experience. In the end, two students stood out from the others, and we congratulate them as our 2023 scholarship winners. We also cheer on all of the applicants in their college endeavors.”

The Dana College Legacy Scholarships are awarded to descendants of Dana alumni, faculty or staff to help them achieve a college experience similar to that of Dana College. The recipients must attend a Christian-affiliated, four-year, liberal arts college or university. Students are judged on multiple criteria, including academic preparation, Dana connections, activity participation, honors and achievements, jobs and/or volunteering, and an essay.

Funding for the scholarships comes from the generosity of alumni through gifts to the Dana College Foundation and through estate gifts.
