Two years of free college at Pine Technical & Community College was awarded to the entire senior class at Rush City High School by the Frandsen Family Foundation.
The Frandsen Family Foundation announced this amazing opportunity on March 16. In a letter to students, they cited a recent Wall Street Journal article that emphasized the growing importance of career and technical education like that provided at Pine Technical & Community College. Their hope is that Rush City students will gain critically needed skills through the personalized educational experience found at Pine and hope some may choose to transfer to a university after completing their studies at Pine.
The scholarship will cover tuition and fees, as well as provide a stipend for books, tools or supplies. Home-schooled students residing within the Rush City School District are also eligible for the scholarship.
