The WDC Scholarship Fund is a scholarship available to all Wadena-Deer Creek seniors. There is no other criteria to apply. The only fundraiser we have for this scholarship is the phonathon. As college is getting more and more expensive, the more we can help our students, the better. WDC National Honor Society members will be calling parents of WDC 7-12 graders on Nov. 10 from 5 to 8 p.m. Any and all donations are appreciated! If you would like to donate, please drop off at the high school or send to: WDC Scholarship Fund, 600 Colfax Ave. SW, Wadena, MN 56482.

Don't believe he's a rich kid who never had to work a day in his life, as some have charged this election season. The truth is he scrubbed toilets and mopped floors for his family's Mills Fleet Farm stores. And today he's vice president in charge of administering a health plan for the chain's 6,000 employees and their families.
