Models for Living and Learning
Jesse Eklund '17, Morris
UMM Alumni Association Scholarship
Having wrapped up his college career, Eklund has his eye on a master's in applied economics. As an undergrad he was able to take full advantage of the college experience, worry-free, thanks to the power of philanthropy.
"This scholarship made it possible for me to go through my experience at UMM without worrying about financial problems. I was able to focus on classes and research and all the things college students should be focused on."
Assistant Professor of Biology
"My students will go on to be the doctors and scientists who will, I firmly believe, develop and implement the therapies that will allow for us to cure each patient of their cancer."
Kali Dale '14

Jasmine Paron '16
Teacher naturalist, Audubon Center of the North Woods
"As I was working with communities, I realized it was something I wanted to do with my life and for my career. I could do service-learning projects: create change, give back, and be a positive influence in my community."
