Timothy T. & Frances White Scholarship


Long-time Kidder County residents, Timothy T. and Frances M. White owned/operated gas stations, vehicle repair shops, a bulk oil business, and were partners in a number of business ventures that served Kidder County residents and communities. Fran worked for many years at the Steele Ozone. Tim and Fran valued hard work and their chosen trades. Over the years, they gave generously of their time and resources to individuals in need, and to Kidder County communities. The White's final wishes included endowments to many local causes. Among the most important was the establishment of this scholarship fund. Through their generous gift, Tim and Fran hoped to leave a legacy of perpetual support for their beloved Kidder County friends and neighbors.
