Susan Darling, Neillsville High School senior, has been named a zone winner in the fourth annual Thorp Finance Foundation scholarship competition. She will receive a $25 United States Savings Bond. The announcement was made by John W. Reynolds, Thorp branch manager in Neillsville.
The essay contest, which was open to more than 39,000 Wisconsin high school seniors, offers two top prizes of $1,000 scholarships to any one of the colleges or universities in the state accredited by the North Central Association of colleges and secondary schools.
