The Ambassadors of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Scholarship

Ambassadors 2019 Recipient 
Caroline Cummings demonstrates a firm commitment to volunteerism and making her community better. We were impressed by her authentic engagement in good causes in her hometown of Farmington and in her college town of Winona. She has led and participated in volunteer activities through 4-H, Student, Council, and the National Honor Society, as well as with the Farmington Ambassador Program. Her enthusiasm for helping those in need stood out. Caroline is a leader who will work to build community no matter where her life will take her. She has demonstrated a penchant for leadership and growth through her experiences as Captain of the Farmington Girls’ Swim and Dive team, as the first female Concert Choir President at Farmington High School, and as a Farmington Ambassador. During her first year at Saint Mary’s University, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, she is involved in Student Senate and was a Committee Chair for the Taylor Richmond Benefit Dance. The Ambassadors of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival congratulate Ms. Cummings on receiving the 2019 Ambassadors Scholarship. We hope that the scholarship helps her achieve her educational goals and we look forward to seeing all the good that she will do in the future.
