Weiser High School student wins Zions Bank scholarship

Weiser High School 2023 graduate Brayden Walker received a $500 scholarship from Zions Bank. Presenting the check to Walker is Katie von Brethorst.
 Getting good grades means money in the bank for Weiser High School student Brayden Walker. He won the regional drawing for a $500 scholarship savings account from Zions Bank’s Pays for A’s program. Walker received the surprise news about the scholarship from Zions Bank employees at a recent presentation in the Weiser branch.  
 Pays for A’s rewards local students for scholastic success. Walker was entered into the drawing by bringing his report card to Zions Bank and was paid for every “A” he received. 
 “Working hard in school pays off in so many ways, and we’re pleased to recognize Brayden for his efforts through the Pays for A’s program,” said Katie von Brethorst, manager of Zions Bank’s Weiser branch. 
 Over the past 20 years, Pays for A’s has rewarded thousands of students across Idaho and Utah for working hard in school. Middle school, junior high, and high school students, ages 12 to 18, can participate by bringing their most current term-end report card into any Zions Bank location. 
 They’ll receive $1 per “A” deposited into their savings account, or 50 cents per “A” if they opt for cash. Students do not need a Zions Bank account to participate.  
 For each “A” on their report cards, students are also entered into a drawing to win one of 18 twice-yearly regional scholarships, each worth $500, and one grand prize drawing in each state.
