Local high school students will be celebrated as Students of Character at a special online event on April 14.
The Students of Character celebration, hosted by Sourcewell, recognizes high school juniors and seniors in the region for their quiet leadership, perseverance and dedication to their community, school and fellow students. Donations from local businesses, organizations and individuals make it possible for each student to receive a scholarship, plus a chance to win door prizes.
At 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 14, honorees and the public can visit the Sourcewell Facebook page to access the link to join the virtual event. The celebration will honor 45 students from 23 local high schools. Every student will receive a $600 scholarship to put toward post-secondary training or education, thanks to the generosity of local businesses, organizations and individuals.
A recording of the complete event will also be shared the following day at sourcewell-mn.gov and on the Sourcewell Facebook page.
