Strength in the Community Scholarship Winner, Karter Kinn

Meet Karter Kinn, one of the 12 winners of the FOX 21 Strength in the Community scholarship.

The Strength in the Community Scholarship was created to help students reach their goals to pursue higher education in a time of rising tuition costs. Twelve finalists will receive $1,000, but one will trade in their $1,000 for a $10,000 check.

Karter is a Two Harbors High School student, who has worked hard to excel not just in the classroom, but also on the court.

“I like playing sports; basketball, football, used to do baseball, and lifting in the morning,” Karter told Fox 21.

Karter plans to attend the University of Minnesota Duluth in the fall, tackling a major in Business. He told us he has a desire to gain skills to start his own business; to build something he can be proud of.

Karter and the rest of the finalists will find out on June 6 if they’ve won the big $10,000 check.
