Thanks to the J.A. Wedum Foundation, Dickinson State College alums John and Rosalie Wosepka were recently able to present a $100,000 endowment to Dickinson State University (DSU) through the DSU Alumni and Foundation.
This scholarship will generate two $2,000 scholarships each year for two deserving education and nursing majors at DSU.
John Wosepka, a native of Golva, received his business education major with a minor in accounting from Dickinson State College in 1968. He worked for 32 years for Bremer Banks, spending 17 of those in Alexandria as bank president.
Wosepka helped Alexandria become a Minnesota Star City, was a national board member at Dollars for Scholars and was a board member for the J.A. Wedum Foundation and the Alexandria Technical School Foundation.
Rosalie, a native of Dickinson, graduated from Dickinson State College in 1969 with an associate degree in nursing and a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Moorhead State University in 1989. Her nursing career spanned 30 years.
The J.A. Wedum Foundation was incorporated in 1959 by the Wedum Family of Alexandria. The initial assets were the remains of the J.A. Wedum estate.
The Foundation is currently based in Minneapolis and has a long history of dedicating substantial portions of its resources and energy to charitable causes allowable under its broad charter.
