NISSWA — The Nisswa Lions chose two students to receive the Ginger Hustvedt Memorial Scholarship: Ara Anderson and Braden Capelle, both seniors at Brainerd High School.

Hustvedt was a longtime member of the Nisswa Lions Club and a retired educator. She lost her battle to cancer in September 2020. Her family left a one-time memorial scholarship of $700 to be given to students entering the education field.

Anderson will go into elementary education, and Capelle will go into music education.
