Gemini is pleased to announce that Danielle Lundtvedt, of Decorah, is a recipient of a 2020 Ross Wagner Engineering Scholarship.
The Ross Wagner Scholarship was established to provide scholarships to deserving students seeking degrees at the country’s top engineering schools. Every scholarship recipient receives a tuition benefit of up to $100,000 paid over four years.
Lundvedt, a senior at Decorah High School, will be attending the University of Minnesota Twin Cities to study biomedical engineering.
