The second annual Bemidji State University Scholarship Appreciation Breakfast on Saturday, Oct. 12, recognized BSU scholarship recipients, their parents and scholarship donors. A total of 550 people attended the event in Memorial Hall, including 195 students. Two students spoke about the importance of receiving a scholarship, and two donors, Dr. Tom and Mary Moberg, spoke about their motivation for giving.
President Richard Hanson, who gave the keynote address, told students their scholarships are not a gift.
"A scholarship is a door opening," Hanson said. "You're responsible to make something out of it."
