S. C. Vanskike spent the days of his boyhood and youth under the parental roof and began his education at the usual age as a pupil in the common schools of Scotia, Nebraska, there passing through consecutive grades to the high school, while subsequently he became a college student and thus was well qualified for life's practical and responsible duties. When his textbooks were put aside he turned his attention to the banking business, which he followed in Scotia, Nebraska, until August, 1917, when he removed to Glenrock to become assistant cashier of the Bank of Glenrock.
The bank was organized on the 5th of June, 1917. with A. A. Spaugh as the president and was capitalized for fifteen thousand dollars. Mr. Vanskike brought broad experience to bear in the performance of his present duties and his efforts are contributing to the growing success of the institution, which has already become well established on a firm and substantial basis. He is a courteous and obliging official, doing everything in his power to please the patrons of the bank to a point that will not hazard the interests of the institution.
In 1910 Mr. Vanskike was united in marriage to Miss Ella Sautter and to them have been born two children. Cecil and Zola M.
