Jackson Club Scholarship Fund

Jackson Club Scholarship Fund

The Jackson Club Scholarship Fund provides financial awards for postsecondary education, including college and vocational training, to graduating seniors from Hermantown High School. Hermantown’s Jackson Club, the oldest club in St. Louis County, was established in 1910 in a one-room school building. The club moved to several different locations before deciding, in 1988, to sell its last club building and meet instead at City Hall. They used proceeds from the sale to create the scholarship fund for local students.
