Burnsville Breakfast Rotary Club Grants $5,000 in Scholarships to Burnsville Area High School Students!
     The Burnsville Breakfast Rotary Club provided five $1,000 scholarships to students of the Burnsville High School and Alternative High Schools that were awarded during recent graduation ceremonies. The students were selected based on essays that they completed outlining the impact of attending District 191 schools on their education, extra-curricular activities, and their volunteerism. Pat Christiansen, Foundation 191 Community Scholarship Chair said that “We appreciate the Burnsville Breakfast Rotary Clubs' generous donations to the Burnsville High School Community Scholarship Program. The generosity of our donors enables BHS graduates to continue their education journey following high school graduation.”
     The recipients of the 2022 Burnsville Breakfast Rotary scholarships were Elijah McKeen, Kathryn Pearson, Julieonna Johns, Joselyne Hernandez, and Jazmyne Seymoure. In Kathryn’s scholarship application she said that “ISD 191 has given me the space and resources to discover my values and morals which have made me realize my passions and what I would like to do in a career.” She plans to attend Minnesota State University in Mankato and major in international relations.
