New Scholarships in honor of our Alumni

The class of 1998 is seeking donations to assist in the funding of a scholarship for the late Michelle (Collins) Speer.

Michelle along with her husband and four little girls were tragically killed in a house fire on October 20, 2016 near Nehawka.  According to members of the class of 1998, Michelle is remembered as an athlete, a great student and a wonderful friend.

With your help we can make this a scholarship opportunity that will be available to North Platte High School graduates for many years.
