RHINELANDER - Paying for college can be difficult.
The Nicolet College Foundation wants to help students earn the degree they're working for.
But now, the foundation is using a different way to connect students to scholarships.
The foundation will now only accept scholarship applications online.
The online process can help students find more scholarships to apply for.
"We have so many more. Literally scholarship opportunities numbering in the hundreds for students. For a small community college, I think that's something to brag about," said Heather Schallock, Executive Director of the Nicolet College Foundation.
The foundation has different types of scholarships available for all types of students.
But not all students take advantage of scholarships.
"It's human nature to assume that doesn't apply to me, I'll never get it, I'm not good enough, whatever label you want to put on it. I think it's easy to assume that's for somebody else and my message is these can be for you," said Schallock.
The scholarships come from donors that have personal ties to Nicolet.
The deadline to apply for scholarships is March 7th.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
