UENRD Awards Senior Scholarships

Upper Elkhorn NRD Awards 2021 Senior Scholarships

Each year the Upper Elkhorn NRD awards three scholarships to graduating high school seniors in the district.  These are students who have chosen to pursue a career in a field related to agriculture, natural resources or the environment.  This year’s recipients are Kirsten Krebs of Pope John XXIII Central Catholic High School; Brooke Ehlers of Chambers High School; Morgan Erhardt of Summerland Public School; and, alternate Emily Fischer of Plainview High School.  Kirsten is the daughter of Jeff and Lynette Krebs and is planning a career in Veterinary Science while attending Southeast Community College.  Brooke, the daughter of Matt and Heidi Ehlers, has chosen a career in Animal Science and plans on attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Morgan Erhardt, the daughter of Lyle and Twyla, is also planning a career in the Veterinary Science field at UNL or Iowa State University.  The alternate, Emily Fischer, with the help of Matt Fischer and Julie Brookhouser, is planning to study pre-Veterinary Medicine at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.   Scholarship winners will receive a scholarship in the amount of $500 to help defer costs during their first year of College.  The Upper Elkhorn NRD would like to congratulate the 2021 Senior Scholarship Winners and wish them good luck in achieving their future goals.
