Congratulations to Graduate & Scholarship recipient Julie Sweep!

Thanks to her hard work and determination, Julie Sweep is graduating this month! She will receive her Associate degree in Nursing, and plans is to transfer to Bemidji State University to finish her Bachelors in Nursing. Julie has enjoyed her time at Minnesota North College in HIbbing. She previously attended a larger college, and was not successful. That all changed when she arrived at Minnesota North HIbbing. According to Julie, the TRIO support, the small classes and the approachability of the instructors are all reasons she exceled! "My scholarships through the foundation made it entirely possible." "The foundation is the reason I am graduating." Julie received multiple foundation scholarships during her time at Minnesota North HIbbing campus. She truly believes in the work that the foundation is doing, "People would be surprised about how many members of our community would go back to school, but they just don't have the funds to do it, and that prevents them from making a difference in the community." Julie's long term plans are to work in either hospice or cardiac care, but wants to also become a nurse practitioner.
