Barb Marsh Scholarship
All Valley County high school seniors are eligible to apply for a substantial college scholarship that will be awarded in February by the Hi-Line Sportsmen. Scholarship winners will be announced at the conservation group’s 1st annual fundraising banquet, scheduled for Sat. Feb. 18th, at St. Raphael’s parish. This is the 3rd year the Barb Marsh Memorial Scholarship will be presented to qualifying high school seniors. But it’s the 1st year that the scholarship is administered by the Hi-Line Sportsmen; previously the scholarship was administered by the local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation. Applicants must possess a valid Montana hunting license; other considerations are community service & participation in hunting & conservation-oriented activities. Application deadline for the scholarship is Jan. 20th. The scholarship is presented in memory of Barb Marsh, a longtime supporter of wildlife conservation & local youth, who died unexpectedly in January 2014. Each year since her death, Barb’s partner, Joe Younkin, has sponsored a special rifle that is auctioned at the conservation banquet. Proceeds from the previous year’s auction are distributed to eligible high school students the following year. The amount of the scholarship varies from year to year since it is dependent on funds raised by the auction, but in previous years, multiple $1000 scholarships were awarded to college-bound Valley County high schoolers. Younkin has donated another firearm to the Hi-Line Sportsmen’s 2017 banquet that will fund 2018 scholarships. Plan to attend the Feb. 18th banquet to bid on the special scholarship gun, a Henry Golden Boy lever-action .22 rifle, as well as other firearms, sporting goods, & home décor, & to recognize the winner or winners of the 2016 Barb Marsh Memorial Scholarship. For details about eligibility & other information about the scholarship, students are encouraged to visit with career counselors at high schools in Glasgow, Nashua, Frazer, Hinsdale, Opheim, & Lustre. Contact Jenn Jackson, 263-7339, or jenn.stein@nemont.net for information about both the scholarship & the banquet, which raises funds for local wildlife conservation, outdoor recreation, youth events, & our hunting heritage.

Account set up for Wesen Family
As some of you know, Curt Wesen was recently diagnosed with cancer. They are going back & forth to Missoula for treatments & doctor appointments & will have thousands of dollars in expenses that insurance will not cover. A fund has been set up at First Community Bank in Glasgow for their benefit. A gofundme account is in the process of being set up. The Glasgow area has been hit hard lately with cancer & there are many fund raisers, gofundme accounts, etc. set up for the people affected. We hope you can find it in your heart to donate whatever you feel you can, to not only Curt's fund but to the other's as well. Curt & Darcel have pledged that any money left over in their funds will be donated to someone else in this area that is suffering from cancer.
