Midland State of Mind

continue firmly or obstinately in an opinion or a course of action in spite of difficulty, opposition, or failure

Community involvement, reinvestment and solid partnerships are priorities of First State Bank & Trust Company.  We know that we can only be as successful as our community and feel it’s important to invest in difference makers in Fremont.  And, Midland University can certainly be defined as a difference maker.

The Lack Family Scholarship was established with the purpose of giving back to Midland students. Our family has experienced the profound benefits of a Midland University education and we recognize the privilege of such an education as it pertains to cost.  It is our hope that the scholarship will provide much-needed support to current Midland students in achieving a college education with minimal debt. 

Brendan Gepson receiveced his Bachelor's in Graphic Design/Marketing from Midland University in 2016. We caught up with Brendan to talk about what he's been up to since graduation, how he landed his dream job, and what advice he has for soon-to-graduates from his alma mater.

 What have you been up to since you graduated?

After graduation, I worked for a small marketing firm in Omaha, and then in March of 2017, I started working in the Marketing Department of the Nebraska Humane Society! I’ve been living in Omaha and working there ever since.
