Scott Harrison appointed to Cook County - Grand Marais EDA

Cook County Commissioners unanimously approved Lutsen Resort owner Scott Harrison’s application to the Cook County – Grand Marais Economic Development Authority (EDA) board on Tuesday, March 20.  His credentials are significant, including a bachelor’s degree from Carleton College, an MBA from Cornell, a work history including being an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, an Outward Bound instructor, a farmer in Vermont, on faculty at the UMD School of Business, and many civic involvements.
Commissioner Sue Hakes told Harrison she hoped he would help the EDA with Cedar Grove Business Park as well as with Superior National at Lutsen Golf Course, which he has long been advocating for.  He assured Hakes he would. 
Harrison was officially sworn in at the EDA meeting later that afternoon.
