Sally Ann Chos Scholarship Fund

The Sally Ann Chos Scholarship provides financial assistance to students from Eveleth-Gilbert High School who plan a career in primary or secondary education, with a preference for those who want to teach elementary students. Generally, awards are divided into spring and fall installments and are renewable once, assuming proper academic progress (GPA of 2.5 or greater) is maintained in an education major. The scholarship is awarded in the student’s first and final year in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree. This gives the student the opportunity to test aptitude and interest in a teaching degree as well as an incentive to complete the degree with the help of a scholarship in the final year of studies. Sally Ann Chos dedicated her life to education. She graduated from Eveleth High School, received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota Duluth and her master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. Sally began her teaching career in McKinley.  When McKinley closed its school, she taught at Nelle Shean Elementary in Gilbert and Franklin Elementary in Eveleth.
