LINCOLN – The Nebraska Bankers Association (NBA) recently announced the 2020 scholarship recipients of the Nebraska Bankers Educational Foundation (NBEF) William B. Brandt Memorial Scholarship Program. Ten $2,000 scholarships have been awarded through this statewide program to assist students pursuing business-related degrees at state or private funded college or university in Nebraska.
Two area students received scholarships. Kennedy Heimes, of Murdock, a student at Nebraska Wesleyan University, was nominated by Jason L. Hansen, American National Bank, Omaha. Madison Stover of Waverly, a student at Nebraska Wesleyan University, was nominated by Michael L. Eden, First Northeast, Ceresco.
These scholarships have been awarded in memory of William B. Brandt, a longtime friend of the Nebraska banking industry. Brandt was a banker, state senator and NBA general counsel.
