Kallie Baldwin, Strength in the Community Scholarship Winner

Meet Kallie Baldwin, 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 $1,00 for a $10,000 check.

Kallie is a Duluth East High School senior, who has spent her high school years by not just cheering on the team, but also her fellow students.

“The community wants you to do better, push for people to do better in general. It’s people helping people,” Kallie told FOX 21.

Kallie plans to attend Hamline University in the fall to take on an Anthropology major.

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