Established in 2007 by William S and Margaret I. Marvin, the scholarship program was created as a way to give back to the Warroad community by providing the opportunity for students to further their education. Recipients of this year’s scholarship program will receive up to a maximum of $9,580 to cover educational expenses at a four-year college or university, or $5,517 for a two-year community or technical school. Scholarships may be renewed each year, for both the 4-year track or the 2-year track.

“My parents treasured their education and chose the lasting gift of knowledge as the single most important gift they could share with the people of this community,” said Susan Marvin, daughter of William and Margaret Marvin, during the scholarship presentation. “The gift of education is truly one of the few gifts in life that last forever. It can never, ever be taken from you.  This is why this scholarship was so important to my mom and dad, and continues to be important to all of us today.”

To date, the William S. and Margaret I. Marvin scholarship program has awarded over $4.3 million dollars to 197 Warroad students.
