Local student receives scholarship

Maple Lake High School student Lauren Borell was chosen as one of 10 recipients of a Buffalo Hospital Foundation $1,000 scholarship. The scholarships were awarded to Wright County stu- dents who plan to pursue careers in health care. Students and their families were invited to a reception where they were welcomed with refreshments, learned about the scholarship program, and heard Mona Volden, RN and Community Engagement and Wellness Manager at Buffalo Hospital, share why she chose to pursue a health care career.

Buffalo Hospital Foundation continues to sup- port local communities and encourages more students to enter the medical field professionally. The Health Care Career Scholarship is funded by proceeds from the Buffalo Hospital Gift Shop. Other local students to receive scholarships were Grace Eiden of Buffalo High School and Paige Sanderson of Annandale High School.
