NPC Friends and Family is delighted to share news of a brand-new scholarship opportunity for students enrolled in the welding program at Northland Pioneer College. Sentry Welding Supply of Lakeside, has generously donated three $500 scholarships for fall 2022.
Sentry Welding Supply owner Douglas Seaman is passionate about postsecondary education and the potential it has to change students’ lives. He described growing up in a large family in West Virginia. Money was extremely tight, and while his father worked hard to provide for the family, Seaman felt that college was a dream that was out of reach. An advocate reached out to him and helped him get a scholarship to a junior college. He took the opportunity all the way through to a university degree. “I want every student to know how important college is,” he says. “There has never been a better time than now to seize the opportunity to make your life better. You may be at a disadvantage, but you do not have to be. If you are in a situation you don’t like, you can change it through education!” As the oldest in his family, Seaman was a role model for his younger siblings, who also went on to succeed in college and careers.
Application instructions for the Sentry Welding Supply Scholarship are located at https://www.npc.edu/scholarships/sentry-welding-supply-scholarship.
