National Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF) has dedicated high school Pay it Forward (PIF) tour scholarships in honor of two Dickinson State University students, Emily Bren and Laura Kunkel.

Bren and Kunkel have continued to dedicate their time to the organization and have participated in a total of four tours. Both students participated on this year’s tour which occurred over Spring Break.

“Through STLF and the Pay It Forward tours, I have developed admirable leadership skills, grown in self-confidence, become socially and self-aware and have made lasting relationships both on campus and throughout the nation,” said Kunkel.

While in Denver, the students traveled to and served in six cities in five states. Projects included cleaning up a 100+ year old theater and preparing it for shows. Additonal service projects included trimming trees, shoveling snow, picking up litter, sweeping sidewalks, painting, cleaning at a horse therapy farm, helping at Habitat for Humanity's ReStore and mulching in a Denver park.
