Members of several local Beta Sigma Phi chapters from across the region recently contributed to a scholarship fund at North Idaho College.

With proceeds from their annual holiday gift wrap booth at the Silver Lake Mall, several local Beta Sigma Phi chapters recently contributed $700 to the Beta Sigma Phi Scholarship established through the North Idaho College Foundation.

NIC student Whitney Hurt was the most recent recipient of the Beta Sigma Phi Scholarship. Hurt, a second-year pharmacy technology student at NIC, received $505 through the scholarship.

“This scholarship has helped me with school expenses and to relieve the stress of having to work to support myself while furthering my education,” Hurt said. “It helped in so many ways.”

Beta Sigma Phi is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1931 to give women of all ages a means of enriching their lives both socially and culturally and to provide a network of support, encouragement, motivation and friendship.
