Joshua Westra, a senior at Dordt University, has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from Sioux Center Municipal Utilities and SCMU’s energy partner Missouri River Energy Services.

“As Sioux Center’s municipal utility provider, we look for ways like this to give back to the community we serve through our partnership with Missouri River Energy Services,” said Sioux Center Utility Manager Murray Hulstein. “Congratulations to Joshua and best wishes as you pursue your studies at Dordt and begin your career.”

This $1,000 scholarship is given annually to a student at Dordt University whose family is a customer of Sioux Center’s community-owned municipal power utility. A recipient is selected each year by the university. 

“Thank you very much for investing in my future and helping with funding my education,” Westra said. “The money will go a long way in helping me finish school with as little debt as possible and make a smooth transition into adulthood.”

Westra, the son of Steve and Kari Westra, of Sioux Center, is pursuing a degree in Business Marketing. After graduating, Westra hopes to continue working with Pizza Ranch and take on a management role.
