A Word from Scholarship Recipients

“I have been a single mom for six years and every amount of money I make goes to our living expenses. I have worked for the foundations through work-study at Anoka-Ramsey for one year now. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for this second chance at furthering my education.”
Melissa Brausen
Kopp Family Foundation Scholarship Recipient

“Being able to be a scholarship recipient didn’t only support me financially, but it gave me the inspiration that I needed to come back to school stronger and to be motivated to work hard and give what it takes to succeed in my classes and pursue my goals. I would like to thank each one of you scholarship donors and Coon Rapids Foundation for making these scholarships happen.”
