Bemel receives TruStone scholarship

Seven top-notch students from high schools in Minnesota and Wisconsin have been awarded $10,000 in scholarships from the TruStone Financial Foundation.

 Scholarships were awarded to graduating seniors based on academic, extracurricular and philanthropic success. An additional $1,000 scholarship was awarded to a graduating senior who is a family member of a TruStone Financial employee.

The scholarship recipients were selected among students who applied from May 1 to May 30, 2016. Applicants were also asked to submit an essay explaining how financial management skills will play a role in their future career goals.

Blaire Bemel from Mendota Heights was selected as one of the 2016 scholarship winners. She attended St. Paul Academy and Summit School and will be attending the University of Minnesota this coming fall.

“Providing these scholarships is one way we can support our membership, the credit union and the communities in which we serve,” said Foundation chairman Tom Alagna.
