Lake Superior College Student Sells Welding Art Pieces for Veterans Charity

DULUTH, Minn. —

A welding student at Lake Superior College is doing her best to give back to veterans.

Her art piece, called “A Soldier’s Love” depicts a silhouette of a soldier and his loyal dogs, backlit by red, white, and blue LEDs.

Kathleen Crooks is hoping to sell these to help raise money for a charity called “Pets Loyal 2 Vets,” a non-profit that connects veterans in Minnesota with trained therapy companion dogs.

“My dad was a World War II vet.  And I don’t think we give enough back to them,” Crooks said.  “I’m hoping by this more people will donate to any cause for the vets.”

She’s selling them for $125.

The sculpture will be entered in the SkillsUSA competition later this month.

Kathleen’s first buyer is a veteran who contacted her directly.

She can be contacted via email or by calling her at 218-565-8490.
