EBA Scholarship Recipients Announced
Each year, the EBA awards three memorial scholarships to high school seniors in our community. Each $1,000 scholarship is presented to individuals who were positively impacted by one or more EBA programs during their school years. Scholarship winners were recognized at the Awards Breakfast held at the Edina Country Club on May 19. This year’s recipients were Isabelle Nelson, Joely Emerson and Kyla Willette. Congratulations to this year’s scholarship winners!
