Corder & Associates offering scholarship
The Corder and Associates Give Back Program is proud to offer their seventh annual scholarships to graduating seniors from any Chouteau County high school planning to attend postsecondary education.
The Give Back Program was initiated 11 years ago with the idea of donating a portion of every sale back to nonprofit organizations within the county where the property was sold.
“We have a strong belief in giving back with an emphasis on support to students of all ages through the scholarships as well as various sporting activities,” said Corder and Associates Broker Staci Corder.
The scholarships will be for $500. Applicants are required to have a minimum 3.0 GPA and all applications must include two letters of recommendation and a 500-700 word essay containing educational plans, school and community activities, scholastic achievements, and personal goals. In addition, graduating seniors must submit a high school transcript.
Scholarship rules and application forms are available here. Completed applications are due April 1, 2019, and are available at the Corder and Associates, LLC office located at 1312 Front Street in Fort Benton anytime from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Interested parties are encouraged to call the office at 622-3224 with any questions they might have.

Please help us congratulate our Realtors, Joann Gogo-Semana, and Nicklaus Schmele with their generosity in giving back to two extremely important organizations that are critical in helping our future!
New member to Rotary Club-Great Falls, Joann Gogo wowed the club recently with her generosity by donating a portion of her first commission to the Great Falls Rotary Foundation. It is an initial donation to start an endowment for Camp Rotary.
Nicklaus Schmele also recently presented a check to the Great Falls Receiving Home. For nearly 50 years, The Great Falls Children’s Receiving Home has provided safe, temporary shelter to thousands of children who have been removed from their homes of origin due to child abuse, neglect, abandonment, parental drug use, domestic violence, and parental incarceration. Each of these children carries a heartbreaking story of his or her abuse.
Way to go Joann and Nick!
There is nothing unlucky about GIVING BACK! Yes, that’s Randy Newberg, television hunting personality accepting our agent, Ty Heap’s contribution to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation as part of Corder and Associates Give Back Program! Way to go Ty!
Corder and Associates strongly believes in giving back! Here is a photo of one of our agents, Kalie Evans presenting a check to Quality Life Concepts. Each year every agent chooses a non profit agency to give back a portion of their sales! Nice job Kalie!
