Vegas Viking Awards Scholarships to 5 Local Outstanding Students with Norwegian Roots.
Five outstanding Clark County high school graduates with Norwegian ancestry have been awarded $800 scholarships by Vegas Viking Lodge of the Sons of Norway. This fraternal organization preserves and promotes Norwegian heritage and culture.
Besides earning top grade-point averages, they were chosen on the basis of well-written essays on their Norwegian heritage,
impressive involvement in extra-curricular activities and financial need. They include two repeat recipients:
* Chelsey Diane Honrud of Henderson, a third-year recipient of a Vegas Viking Scholarship, is a pre-nursing student at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. She also works 25 hours a week at Echelon Senior Living Center. Her plan for fall is to continue her studies, maybe at Nevada State College. She is a graduate of Foothill High School.
* Katherine Elaine Reed of Las Vegas, a second-time recipient, is a nuclear environmental engineering student at the University of Alabama where she has minors in mathematics and religious studies. She is a Spring Valley High School graduate.
* John Michaelson of Las Vegas, a graduating senior Faith Lutheran High School who will attend Concordia University Wisconsin. His goal is a doctorate in physical therapy.
* Maia Nelson, a graduating senior at Foothill High School in Henderson. Her goals are to enroll at the University of Nevada Reno this fall to begin studies toward becoming a trauma doctor with the U.S. Air Force.
* Isak Ohman, a graduating senior at Clark High School in Las Vegas. His goal is to study computer science and engineering at the University of Nevada Reno this fall.
Most scholarship recipients and their families will be guests at the lodge’s June 1 supper meeting. Michaelson and his family joined members at the May 13 Syttende May picnic.
Scholarship funds are raised through a variety of lodge activities, including sales of a Scandinavian recipe book, annual events— Granny’s Attic at the holiday bazaar, the Vegas Viking’s encampment at the Renaissance Fair—plus private tax-deductible donations.
We hope to raise more money for scholarships in 2018. If you wish to make a tax-deductible donation, please make out a check to the Vegas Viking Lodge, Sons of Norway Scholarship Fund and mail to:
