The Winona Daily News partnered with the Winona Community Foundation in 2021 to establish a new fund, the Above and Beyond Scholarship Fund, to provide annual scholarships to Winona-area high school seniors who have overcome obstacles or provided exemplary service to others.

WNB Financial is supporting the Above and Beyond Scholarship program with a challenge contribution of $10,000. This contribution will help fund some of this year’s scholarship recipients and will also contribute to future scholarships given through this fund. In announcing this gift, WNB Financial hopes to inspire others to contribute to the scholarship fund.

Nancy Brown, President and CEO, said: “the Above and Beyond program recipients are truly inspiring. It was really exciting when we learned how WNB Financial stepped up in such a big way to benefit these students. To be a small part of helping these students succeed by serving as the fund sponsor of the Above and Beyond Scholarship Fund is an honor for the Winona Community Foundation. We look forward to stewarding this scholarship program for years to come.”
