DECORAH, Iowa, May 18, 2020 – Seth Shindelar of Decorah, Iowa has been awarded the 2019-2020 Adam J. Bohr Memorial Engineering Scholarship. The scholarship is given by the Bohr family and McClure of Clive, Iowa in honor of the late Mr. Adam J. Bohr.

Shindelar will receive $4,000, paid over two years, for his pursuit of engineering study. He is graduating from Decorah High School and plans to attend Iowa State University to study Engineering.

“Adam was full of energy and not afraid to take on tough challenges. His personality would light up a room – not typical of most engineers,” said Terry Lutz, CEO of McClure. “When selecting a scholarship winner, we try to find someone that best represents Adam and we believe Seth does just that.”
