The Libby High School Educational Trust has awarded two scholarships to Libby High School graduates.

Arista Munsel, daughter of Joshua and Dawn Munsel, received $1,000 from the Libby High School Educational Trust. She will be attending Montana State University in Bozeman and majoring in Biochemistry.

Her overall goal is to attend dentistry school after graduating from MSU and pursue a career in dentistry.

Lucky Martin, son of Kristan and Jeffery Martin, also received $1,000. He will be attending Montana State University in Bozeman with the ultimate goal of obtaining his Bachelors degree in Political Science or History and to graduate college as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force.

The Libby High School Educational Trust was established in 1988 to provide scholarships for worthy students that are graduates of Libby High School and who may be in need of financial assistance to obtain additional education. Applications are available at Libby High School.

Donations to the Trust are always welcomed and encouraged. Since the start of the scholarship over $62,000 in scholarships has been awarded. Only the interest earned is used to provide scholarships so the Trust will continue to benefit future Libby High School students.

Trustees of the Fund are Nancy Chalgren, Jim Sullivan, Niles Nelson, Linda Buti and Juli Cooper.

Anyone wanting more information or wishing to donate to the Trust may contact any of the Trustees.
