Freightliner of St. Cloud has announced that Ryan Schusted of Cambridge is a winner of its annual scholarship. Schusted will receive $2,500 toward his education at St. Cloud Technical and Community College (SCTCC) in the diesel engine program. He is also an apprentice technician at Freightliner of St. Cloud.
Scholarship selections are based on academic excellence, class attendance, work ethic and performance on the job. The winners commit to working at Freightliner of St. Cloud for two years following graduation from SCTCC.
While in high school, Schusted took first place at a regional welding competition and second place at a state welding contest. He also grew up working with his father and uncle on trucks and construction equipment. Those experiences shaped his decision to attend SCTCC for its diesel engine program.
