The Granite Falls campus Spring Scholarship & Awards Brunch was held on campus Tuesday, April 1. The Campus gave out a total of $13,900 in scholarships to students at this banquet. 

 

In addition to scholarship awards, the Campus also recognized the students who have participated in Business Professionals of America, Phi Theta Kappa, and Student Senate for the 2013-2014 school year at the Granite Falls Campus. Guest Speaker for the Scholarship Brunch was Michael VanKuelen, Director of the Redwood Falls Center of Minnesota West. 


Scholarships to Minnesota West students are made possible through the Minnesota West Foundation, which is run by a Board of Directors. Locally, Rita Christianson of Granite Falls is a member of this Board of Directors. The Foundation accepts donations from alumni, faculty & staff, community members, and many business and industries that support the college and its programs.
