Forward Bank has awarded $5,500 to local students through the Scholarship Program. A total of 11 students received a $500 scholarship to pursue higher education after high school. 

Scholarships are awarded annually to one individual in each community that Forward Bank has a branch location. Forward also awards one employee or employee’s child the Bob Lotzer Scholarship. The Scholarship Committee is amazed every year by the remarkable applications received.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Employees of Forward, we are proud to announce the 2021 Forward Bank Scholarship Recipients:

Jarrett Daul (Athens High School)

Emma Peavey (Colby High School)

Rachel Lindner (Greenwood High School)

Wyatt Drexler (Columbus Catholic High School)

Thomas Minneau (Chequamegon High School)

Anthony Kaster (Phillips High School)

McKenzie Derks (Stanley-Boyd High School)

Kaytlyn Stunkel (Thorp High School)

The 2021 Bob Lotzer Scholarship Recipient is Logan Mueller (Marshfield High School). 

It is important that each student can pursue higher education and bring their knowledge back to their hometowns. By awarding these scholarships, Forward is helping cover the financial gap today’s college bound students are experiencing.
