Scholarship Winners Announced
The Dana College Foundation is pleased to announce the 2021 Legacy Scholarship recipients! Each will receive $5,000.00 to further their education at a Christian-affiliated, liberal arts institution in the tradition of the Dana experience. The scholarships are available to descendants of Dana alumni, faculty and staff. Selections are made by the Dana College Foundation board of directors.

This year’s recipients include:
Caitlin Orton of Mills, Nebraska, a graduate of Rock County High School, is the daughter of Jason and Chana Orton, both of whom are Dana grads. Caitlin will be attending Hastings College to study elementary education.

Katheryn Stapel of Leicester, Massachusetts, is a graduate of Leicester High School. She is a granddaughter of Dana alumni Marc and Ruth Petersen. Several other relatives on both sides of the family are also Dana alumni. Katheryn will attend Stonehill College in Easton, MA, to study elementary education and sociology.

Once again we had terrific candidates for our scholarships! We had many that were very close in their academic preparation, volunteerism, achievements and other qualities. But the two young ladies, without question, stood out to the Board as the best overall. Many, many thanks to the donors who made our scholarship fund possible, to carry on the legacy of Dana College.
