Grand Marais graduate receives Eerie Mining Company scholarship
The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation and the St. Louis County Historical Society awarded the $1500 Erie Mining Company Scholarship to a Cook County Senior High School graduate at the Depot in Duluth on Wednesday.
The scholarship was established to commemorate the history of the Erie Mining Company and its employees and this year it was awarded to Taylor DeBoer of Grand Marais.
“She’s just phenomenal!” said Ronald Hein, the assistant project manager of the Erie History Project Team.
DeBoer said she’s grateful for the recognition and plans to put the scholarship towards studying nursing at Winona State University.
“It’s exciting and it’s kind of crazy, because I’m just from a small town in Minnesota and to have this awesome opportunity– it’s really crazy!”
