The Class of 1963 was able to award a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving Class of 1923 graduate. A big thank you to those of you who donated!  Here’s the thank you note from Isaac Nelsen, this this year’s scholarship recipient:  

Dear Class of 1963,

Thank you for the time, thought and donations you put into your scholarship fund.  This scholarship will be a big help as I take my next step into the electrical field.  As a broke high schooler, your act of kindness will go a long way toward helping me achieve my future goals.   

This coming year is filled with so much opportunity it was hard to decide on a career path.  After long consideration I’ve decided to pursue a five year program with the Minneapolis Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee sponsored by local electrical contractors and the IBEW.  Your scholarship will be a huge help for me.  Thank you very much.

Yours truly,

Isaac Nelsen
