LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ Eastern Oregon University students Shawn Brooks, of Richland, Wash., and Scott McFarlane, of Roseburg, are the winners of a recurring scholarship raffle sponsored by Dutch Bros. Coffee.
Both received a $500 check from area franchise owners Marc and Angela Lee. The fellow seniors plan to use their winnings to offset the cost of textbooks.
“This will also help me purchase any materials needed for projects and help put a dent in my student loans,” added Brooks, who is pursuing a dual major in elementary education and multidisciplinary studies with an ESOL endorsement.
McFarlane, an anthropology and sociology major, submitted his name multiple times hoping to increase his odds for the drawing.
“I biked down to Dutch Bros. pretty much every day to enter the scholarship raffle,” he explained.
No purchase is required to enter the drawing and all current EOU students are eligible to win. Simply stop by Dutch Bros. Coffee on Island Ave. and fill out an entry form.
