CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- University of Northern Iowa student Michael Minard , a senior real estate major from Elkader , has been named winner of a $1,000 scholarship from the Minneapolis-based Mid-Continent Chapter of the Society of Industrial & Office realtors (SIOR).
The Mid-Continent Chapter is one of 39 SIOR chapters. The society currently has 2,000 member-designees who have passed a series of tests to achieve SIOR designation.
