Jerry Erickson Educational Scholarships


Our educational scholarship program is named in honor of the late Jerry Erickson, who served as an esteemed volunteer at Northland for 46 years. We are indebted to his knowledge, vision, and commitment, which propelled us to where we are today. Education was important to Jerry, and through his legacy, we strive to help our student members reach their academic goals.






Scholarship winners will be announced first to students at their local high school award nights, and then we will present them here on our website, on social media, and at branches.
