Patricia S. Gustafson ’56 Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Patricia S. Gustafson ’56 Memorial Scholarship Fund awards a scholarship to a graduating female senior from Denfeld High School or Marshall School who exemplifies Patricia Gustafson’s life. Applicants must have a GPA of at least 3.4 and plan to attend the University of Minnesota Duluth, the College of St. Scholastica or Lake Superior College. Prospective applicants should contact their Denfeld counselor for more information. The fund grants one scholarship annually. The first payment is for the recipient’s first college semester. The second is for the recipient’s last college semester.  Patricia Scheiderick Gustafson graduated from Denfeld High School in 1956. She was valedictorian, a cheerleader, first-chair clarinet and a choir member. She attended UMD, graduating with a cum laude degree in English. She raised a family in Duluth and taught part-time.
