Celebrating the Class of 2020 Scholarship Winners

The Bank of Elk River is proud to announce that it has awarded over fifteen scholarships to area students for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Following a rich tradition of investing in local communities and supporting educational opportunities, The Bank of Elk River started an internal scholarship program in 2017 designated exclusively for bank employees, board members, and their families.

One high school senior, Gracelyn Riedel, who shared in the bank’s values of lifelong learning and a steadfast commitment to volunteerism, is the recipient of the internal Bank of Elk River Scholarship this year.

The Bank of Elk River has also sponsored scholarships for fifteen additional students from area high schools to help cover the cost of their collegiate education. In all, The Bank of Elk River has given $15,500 in scholarships to the local community in 2020.


“This was the first year we were not able to present our scholarships in person due to the pandemic,” said Julia Schreifels, Vice President, The Bank of Elk River. “Though we were not there in person, our heartfelt congratulations are with each of these students who demonstrated first-hand they have the drive, effort, and energy to succeed in college”.

High school seniors in Anoka, Big Lake, Elk River, Princeton, Rogers, St. Michael-Albertville, and Zimmerman have received Bank of Elk River-sponsored scholarships. Winners were chosen based on a variety of criteria and have been honored at their respective school’s scholarship ceremonies.

The Bank of Elk River proudly serves the financial needs of individuals and businesses in Anoka, Elk River, Otsego, Zimmerman, and the surrounding communities.
