Shepherd man donates $15,000 to Montana State University-Northern



Shepherd, Montana – Carl Vender of Shepherd recently donated $15,000 to Montana State University-Northern.

As a 1968 graduate and a 1989 Founder’s Excellence Award Winner, Carl Vender is a great supporter of his former university. With his recent donation to MSU-Northern, he established the Carl Vender Family Endowment.

“During my sophomore year in the NMC Industrial Arts program where I was specializing in drafting and surveying, I was informed I would not continue receiving National Defense Loans to complete my teaching degree. Luckily, I was able to adjust my schedule and receive my drafting certificate. Hopefully, this scholarship will help students meet their goals,” Vender said.

With this current endowment as a support, the Carl Vender Civil Engineering Endowed Scholarship will provide $500 to Northern Civil Engineering students each year.

“Our Civil Engineering Technology program is an area we really would like to grow and this gift will help that happen. We are always grateful for endowments that ensure ongoing support for Northern and our students,” MSU-Northern Chancellor Greg Kegel said.
