Two Staples community residents have been elected to serve three-year terms on the Central Lakes College Foundation Board of Directors. Julia Palmer and Brad Anderson join the 21-person board of the non-profit organization responsible for providing scholarships and other student financial support at the community and technical college in Brainerd and Staples. “We welcome our two newest members to our board,” said Diane Scearcy, Foundation executive director. “Without their support, the Foundation couldn’t provide financial assistance to students at our Brainerd and Staples campuses. “Through the generosity of our community we are awarding nearly $285,000 in student scholarships during 2009-10.” Each year the Foundation serves at least 350 students.
