Four Luther College students have each received a $1,000 Karen Julesberg Scholarship for the 2020-21 academic year.
The four include Caledonia resident Erica Kruse, who is double majoring in art and English. A student assistant for the college English Department, she also serves on the editorial board for the student literary journal, "The Oneota Review," and is a freelance artist specializing in painting, drawing and calligraphy. On weekends, she helps out on the dairy farm her family has owned and operated for four generations. She will graduate from Luther College in 2022.
The Karen Julesberg Scholarship benefits Luther College students involved in the TRIO Achievement Program, which provides customized support and comprehensive programming that promotes students' academic success, personal development and sense of community.
