Greater Itasca NOW Spotlight: Brianna Thompson

Brianna Thompson loves living here in the Greater Itasca Area. She was interested in having a better paying career – right here at home. She applied for scholarships through the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation so that she could become a licensed nurse. Brianna received a Greater Itasca NOW Educational Award for $2,000 to attend Northwest Technical College. We anticipate welcoming Brianna back to our community next year to better serve our community’s healthcare needs.

  • Jerry and Cathie (Saxhaug) Anderson

  • Blandin Paper (UPM)

  • Grand Itasca Foundation
