Jack Sievert, a senior at St. Ansgar High School, was honored as the 2019 recipient of the Iowa Bankers Association’s Student Athlete Achievement Scholarship Award for the Class A class during the Iowa high school state football championships Nov. 21-22 in Cedar Falls.
This award recognizes student athletes excelling not only on the field, but also in their classrooms and in their communities. Sievert was selected by the IBA’s scholarship committee based on his scholastic standing, leadership skills, community involvement and athletic participation.
Carter Patterson, Vice President at St. Ansgar State Bank in St. Ansgar and Stacyville presented Sievert with a $1,000 scholarship to the college of his choice.
“On behalf of the Iowa Bankers Association and St. Ansgar State Bank, I’m pleased to present Jack Sievert with this much-deserved award. Iowa bankers are proud to support education and students of Jack’s caliber,” Patterson said.
For nearly 30 years, the IBA has sponsored the Student Athlete Achievement Scholarship Awards, in partnership with the Iowa High School Athletic Association and the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union. The program includes awards to student athletes in football, basketball and wrestling. The IBA has awarded more than $265,000 in scholarships since the program began in 1990.
