Generous donors have established scholarship funds for students in our BME program. Grants from $100-1500 are awarded each year to provide enhanced learning opportunities for current BME students. See below for more information and to apply.
In 2013, the Gary Tinsley Memorial Scholarship fund was created to honor the memory of Gary Tinsley, a Golden Gopher linebacker and Business and Marketing Education (BME) student, who passed away due to an enlarged heart a few weeks before he was to graduate.
This fund was established with a bequest from Dorothy M. Stockamp (B.S. '53) who passed away in 2021. Born in Buhl, MN, Dorothy studied business education at the University of Minnesota. In Dorothy’s own words, her greatest achievement was being a teacher for 38 years and “loving every minute of it.” She had her first teaching job in Pine City, where she met her future husband Raymond Stockamp. They settled in Sandstone in 1959, where Ray set up his TV and electronics business. Dorothy taught mostly business classes at Askov High School from 1960 until 1987, and then moved to the newly-built Sandstone High School. She was very passionate about her work and bringing the best out in her students, and is frequently acknowledged by former students as a well-loved, respected, and inspirational teacher.
