The scholarship board awarded $2,000 in aid to Skyler Dockter of Dickinson, ND and Anna Dragseth of Williston. Awards were announced April 14,2019 at the 6th Annual Bartenders Battle, the main fundraising event sponsored by the High Plains Reader. Craft cocktails, spirited bidding, pirates swarming- Annie would have loved it! We are living through strange Bizarro-like times; yet hope and persistence remain. Annie wrote a few weeks before she died, "Be honest, grateful, and forgive yourself after learning tough lessons. Spend money on experiences, not things. Live a life driven by curiosity and not by fear." She never gave up and neither should we.
