Minneapolis, Minn. (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Globe University and Minnesota School of Business (MSB) announced the recipients of its 10 annual awards for Youth Frontiers retreats at high schools in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The 10 retreats for high school juniors and seniors are valued at $40,000. Globe and MSB received 40 applications this year, which made the field particularly competitive.
Mindy Myhre, director of charitable giving for the career college network, said “The essays the high schools submit as part of the application packages were difficult to judge because most were of exceptional quality. We’re pleased that area high schools see the value of these wonderful character-building and anti-bullying retreats led by Youth Frontiers’ staff.”
