  • Grace Shelton, a Senior at Clark Fork Jr./Sr. High School;
  • Grace Mikolajczyk, a Senior at Moscow High School;
  • Brody von Brethorst, a Senior at Weiser High School;
  • Benjamin Behm, a Senior at Twin Falls High School;

IAC has been giving scholarships to children of county employees and to the children or grandchildren of county elected officials for sixteen years. County elected officials and employees contribute annually to the IAC scholarship fund through personal donations and other fundraising efforts such as auctions. With the extraordinary efforts of the county elected officials, employees and corporate sponsors, the fund went from two scholarships awarded in the first year to seven this year.  The final selection was made from a pool of 72 applicants.
