Kieson awarded rodeo scholarships

Mamie Kieson, a 2009 graduate from Watford City High School was recently awarded the WW Livestock Systems dealer’s scholarship of $250 at the North Dakota High School Finals Rodeo held at Bowman, N.D., on June 18-20, 2009.
WW Livestock Systems and its extensive network of dealers located across the country initiated this exciting scholarship program four years ago as a way to recognize outstanding young high school athletes who are interested in going on to pursue a career in some area of livestock production.
Mamie also received two scholarships at the National High School Rodeo in Farmington, N.M., in July.
All seniors that qualify for the national finals are eligible to apply for the scholarships. Mamie received a $500 scholarship from the NHSRA Scholarship Foundation. She also was awarded a $1,000 Achievement Scholarship from the NDHSRA Scholarship Foundation.
Mamie will be attending DSU majoring in Ag business and Math Education.
