Joseph Addy, Strength in Community Scholarship Winner

Meet Joseph Addy, one of 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.

Joseph is an Eveleth-Gilbert senior, who is doing more than standing out on the field, he’s helping those in need.

“It makes me feel like if I was in that situation I’d want people to help me, so I like to help others,” Joseph told FOX 21.

Joseph plans to attend Concordia Moorhead for Business in the fall.

Joseph and the other finalists will find out on June 6 whether they’ve won the big $10,000 check.
