2019 Scholarship Recipient
North Star Public School senior, Mya Halverson, daughter of Rod and Jamie Halverson of Cando, North Dakota, has been selected as the 2019 Kelsey’s Courage Scholarship recipient. The Kelsey’s Courage Scholarship was initiated by the Misialek family of Adams, North Dakota in memory of Kelsey Misialek who passed away from injuries sustained in an ATV accident in June of 2012. Kelsey was an energetic and determined 15-year-old who had a strong desire to become an orthopedic surgeon. Due to Kelsey’s interest in the medicine the Misialek family decided to award the annual scholarship of $500 to a North Dakota high school senior pursing a degree in the medical field.
Halverson was selected because of her exceptional dedication to volunteerism with her community, academic achievements, work ethic, and her drive to positively influence the lives of others. The Scholarship committee believes that Halverson best represents what Kelsey believed in.
Mya Halverson will graduate from North Stare Public School this spring. Mya plans to attend Lake Region State College in Devils Lake, North Dakota in the fall to achieve her career goal of becoming a nurse.
