Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) and Wells Fargo donated $16,000 to Western Nebraska Community College last month as a result of the 27th Annual Nebraska Open golf tournament.

The Nebraska Open, which is administered by the Nebraska Section of the PGA and Nebraska Golf Association, also serves as a fundraiser with proceeds going toward student scholarships at five community colleges in Nebraska: Central Community College, Mid-Plains Community College, Southeast Community College, Northeast Community College, and Western Nebraska Community College. Wells Fargo is the title sponsor for the Nebraska Open.

"We thank Nebraska Public Power District and Wells Fargo for their ongoing efforts to support community colleges in Nebraska," said WCCA Board of Governors Chairperson Julienne Walworth. "The Nebraska Open is a wonderful demonstration of the impact our community partners make in the lives of our students."

"Nebraska Public Power District is grateful for the work done by community colleges across our state, including Western Nebraska Community College," said Terry Rajewich, NPPD Account Manager. "Nebraska's economy is stronger because of the education provided through the Nebraska community college system, and Nebraska Public Power District is stronger for having the ability to hire these students."

Over the last 27 years, the Nebraska Open has raised more than $1.5 million, including nearly $314,000 for WNCC student scholarships.
