This $3,900 scholarship, established and funded by the Herbert V. Prochnow Educational Foundation, furthers the goal of supporting banker education. The scholarship is made available annually to a selected individual who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and a commitment to his or her community and to the banking industry.
“The banking industry and the communities we serve have a bright future because of the leadership of bankers such as Tyler,” said Rick Clayburgh of the North Dakota Bankers Association. “This scholarship is in recognition of Tyler’s leadership in Dacotah Bank and the community it serves,” Clayburgh continued.
A native of Valley City, Marthaler graduated from North Dakota State University with a degree in economics. In 2011, Tyler completed the Dakota School of Banking and was awarded the Outstanding Banker award. He currently serves as Director of the School.
