Jaylee Mattis, daughter of Billie and Scott Mattis, received a $1000 scholarship from the North Dakota League of Cities Jan Jordan Scholarship Fund. Jaylee attends North Dakota State University studying radiologic sciences with a minor in psychology with an expected graduation year of 2022.
Letters of recommendation included testaments to the kind of person she is. “Jaylee is a warm, friendly and outgoing individual. Her potential for success in any field of healthcare she chooses is considerable, which is why I give her my highest recommendation for a scholarship.”
