Valedictorian and Salutatorian Awards

Cook County School District received a call from the Duluth Area Foundation.  Unfortunately, the stock market performance has caught up with Scott Scholarship Fund used to award our Valedictorian and Salutatorian each year. 
We will not be able to provide the valedictorian and salutatorian scholarships from this fund this year as we need to take at least 1 year off to let the fund rebuild unless donations from the community are received.   

If you would like to donate to help provide the Valedictorian and Salutatorian scholarship fund, please contact Lori Backlund at  The donations must specifically state they are for the scholarship. 

Thank you,
