NSU student wins David S. Birkeland Scholarship
ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University student Chloe Martell was named
the 2013 recipient of the $1,000 David S. Birkeland Scholarship.

The scholarship is offered annually by the South Dakota Bankers Foundation. Martell, a junior majoring in business administration and accounting, plans to graduate in 2014.

Martell, a graduate of T. F. Riggs High School in Pierre, has been active in many community service efforts, including the Boys and Girls Club and Humane Society.

The David S. Birkeland Scholarship was created in memory of banker David S. Birkeland, past president of the South Dakota Bankers Association and president of First Bank of South Dakota in Sioux Falls. Birkeland was killed in a plane crash with Gov. George S. Mickelson and six others in April 1993, while serving his community and state.

Eligible students must be a junior enrolled at any South Dakota institution of higher learning; have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; express an interest in a career in banking, business or finance; and have demonstrated leadership qualities.
