Four Western Nebraska Community College received $500 veteran's scholarships at a ceremony Thursday morning at the Sidney Municipal Airport. The Veterans Upward Bound program presented two $500 foundation scholarships to Christopher Buckley and Alan Smith. Those were funded through donations to the program via the WNCC Foundation. Richard Weinmaster received his award from the SPC James R. Wolf Memorial Scholarship, while Paul Bennett received a scholarship from Security First Bank of Sidney. All four served in the U.S. military.
