On May 15, we awarded scholarships to two graduating seniors from Pequot Lakes High School. This is an exciting evening for them and it's always a pleasure to be part of it. It's well organized, yet casual. Very nice.

We were impressed again this year with the quality of the written essays we received. We're proud of the students who shared their needs and hopes with us. Narrowing our choices to two students left us wishing we could choose all of them.

The entire graduating class deserves congratulations. This is a milestone event in any young person's life; one of many to come. The world is at your feet. We wish you all great success.
