Sandhills State Bank, the Sandhills’ largest locally-headquartered and owned financial institution providing Nebraska values of stability, commitment, and partnership to its customers, today announced a $50,000 donation to the Nebraska High School Rodeo Association Endowment.
The $50,000 donation will be invested in the NEHSRA Endowment that was established to help fund the year-end awards and scholarships for the student membership.
Tricia Schaffer, NEHSRA Director, called this donation “The largest gift in the history of the NEHSRA Endowment Fund. We are hoping this contribution will give exposure to our endowment fund that will continue to benefit the association and youth rodeo in Nebraska forever.”
Ted Klug, Jr., Sandhills State Bank President, said, “We are proud to be both associated with and sponsoring the Nebraska High School Rodeo Association. The families and students involved represent the thriving agricultural industry in Nebraska.”
“The Nebraska State High School Rodeo Association is a long-standing tradition in the Sandhills. Youth rodeo provides an opportunity for youth to build life experiences while gaining a greater appreciation of our agricultural heritage.”
Contributions and memorials to the NEHSRA Endowment Fund can be made by contacting Tricia Schaffer at 308.534.1244. The Nebraska High School Rodeo Association is a registered 501(c)(3).
