Dr. Robert Musgrove, president of Pine Technical College (left), presented a “Mentor” Award to Lion President Mike Fluegel for the club’s many years of donations in supporting the college’s scholarship program.
Pine Tech has shown tremendous growth in the years since the Lions donations began, which are only a small part of the total funding for the college.
Presently, there are 30 active North Branch students enrolled, with a total of 911 from Minnesota. The Lions also provided scholarships to two North Branch High School students.
They were Megan Zimmerman, who will be attending the University of Minnesota-Rochester, and Brandon Hilderberger, who will be attending the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis.
The Pine Tech presentation was made at last Tuesday’s Lions Club meeting.
