MINOT, N.D.- We start in Bottineau for Wednesday's County by County.

Dakota College at Bottineau recently released an official headcount of students enrolled in spring semester.

You will find 903 students roaming the campus this spring. The college says that is 41 more students than last year. The past record for enrollment was 882 in the spring of 2018.

We reported a few weeks ago on Dakota College at Bottineau's new scholarship, the Hometown Career Scholarship aimed at supporting workforce needs in north central North Dakota.

New students from Bottineau, Renville, McHenry, Pierce, and Rolette Counties are eligible to apply for the $2,500 scholarship.
