Clare Slator Stepanek grew up on the family’s homestead near Williston. She was valedictorian of her high school class in Alexander, North Dakota. She married Al Stepanek and they had one son, Ron. They moved into Williston in the mid-1960s, and continued to farm in McKenzie County. Clare was a strong believer in education, and upon her passing, her son Ron’s widow, Kay Stepanek, started this scholarship in her memory.
