Linda Ulland Memorial Scholarship 2018 recipient, Alexandra Kotaska
Pequot Lakes 2018 graduate, Alexandra Kotaska, was the recipient of the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association’s scholarship. She was notified of the award in May and will receive funds upon successful completion of her first college semester.
The Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association (PBSBA) provides a yearly opportunity for graduating seniors from Pequot Lakes, PineRiver-Backus and Crosslake Community schools to apply for a $1000.00 scholarship.
The scholarship, known as the Linda Ulland Memorial Scholarship, was established by the PBSBA board shortly after Linda’s passing December 26, 2011, and has been available to seniors from these three Byway route schools since 2012. One scholarship is available each year.
Linda Ulland was instrumental in helping the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association organize as a non-profit group and in crafting the bedrock documents that continue to guide the Association today. Her dedication and many volunteer hours assured the establishment and longevity of the Byway. The Linda Ulland Memorial Scholarship provides the PBSBA with an opportunity to honor Linda’s commitment, recognize the results of that commitment, and challenge others to follow in her Paul Bunyan-sized footsteps of community service and volunteerism.
Students with a strong interest in community service and environmental issues who wish to apply for this scholarship in 2019 can get an application at their high school counselor’s office or by clicking here to download as pdf.
