Two York County students named recipients of scholarships from Nebraska Association of County Officials

YORK – York County students Allie Boehr and Sara Weisheit are two of 12 students in the state to be awarded scholarships from the Nebraska Association of County Officials (NACO).

NACO began its scholarship program in 1999 when it presented six high school seniors with $500 awards each to be used toward their post-secondary educations. Since 2004, NACO has presented 12 high school seniors with $1,000 awards each to be used toward their post-secondary educations.

The scholarship program is open to graduating seniors whose parent, step-parent or grandparent is a current county official or employee. Scholarships are available for one year and are non-renewable.

To be considered, students must complete the required application form, submit a seven-semester transcript from an accredited Nebraska high school and prepare a written essay on the importance of county government.

Scholarship recipients must plan to attend a post-secondary educational institution within the state of Nebraska and may use the NACO scholarship for any costs associated with their continuing education.
