The Yankton Rotary Club has graciously gifted $1,000.00 to Mount Marty College for the Annual Yankton Rotary Club Scholarship. This gift will be awarded to a student according to the scholarship criteria established by the Rotary Club and MMC. The Yankton Rotary Club has been providing this scholarship opportunity to Mount Marty students since 1970.

"The Yankton Rotary Club is the oldest service club in Yankton being formed over 90 years ago. It has a long history of focusing on youth and education and recognizes the importance of supporting our local college", states Gary Dybsetter, president of the Yankton Rotary Club. "Through our local fundraising efforts, the Yankton Rotary Club directs funds through our Foundation to support Mount Marty College's scholarship program."

Chief Advancement Officer at MMC, Barb Rezac, is excited about the gift from the Yankton Rotary Club. "Scholarship gifts, no matter what size, help to defray the cost of a higher education. That can be a great benefit and make a huge impact. The generosity of the Yankton Rotary Club is greatly appreciated. Through donations such as this we can continue to provide quality and affordable education to students in our community and region."
