Central Lakes College Practical Nursing student Samantha Goldberg was awarded a $500 scholarship from the local Forty and Eight veterans organization.
Goldberg, from Pequot Lakes, was surprised with the award Wednesday during class at CLC when four Forty and Eight representatives presented her with the $500 check.
The scholarship is awarded to a RN or LPN nursing student each year. Students apply for the honor, and the Forty and Eight choose the winner.
This year, eight applied for the scholarship.
