Mn Teen Challenge scholarship

A scholarship for Central Lakes College students who are graduates of Minnesota Teen Challenge will come from a new endowment with the CLC Foundation. An anonymous donor of $1,000 had created the educational opportunity, said Pam Thomsen, director of resource development and CLC Foundation. “The initial donation is from a supporter of both the Teen Challenge program and higher education,” she said. Thomsen encourages additional contributions to this tax-deductible fund, “so that the scholarship becomes meaningful to a student.” The scholarship will be awarded to the eligible recipient who has completed MnTC, provides a letter of recommendation from the center director or dean and demonstrates financial need, said Sam Anderson, director of Central Minnesota Teen Challenge, Brainerd.
