John & Mattie Iverson Family Endowment
Arriving from Norway in the late 1800s, John and Mattie Iverson married in 1895 and raised ten children on a farm south of Woodville, WI. Through a strong work ethic and a frugal lifestyle, they became productive, respected members of the community. They excelled at managing their farm and sought lumbering and fine carpentry pursuits to enhance family income. Their children – Edwin, Nettie, Ida, Helen, Walter, Bennie, Mabel, Harold, Rosella, and Alvin – respected the lifestyle of John and Mattie; and it is with them in mind that this scholarship was established.
This scholarship is open to any student enrolled in the Dairy Herd Management, Construction & Cabinetmaking, or Veterinary Technician Program, with preference given to students from the Baldwin/Woodville area.
