MARIE V. SALTWICK SCHOLARSHIP
This Scholarship was established according to the will of Marie Saltwick to provide scholarships for Denfeld High School graduates. Marie Saltwick, a native of Duluth, returned to her home town following her graduation from Carleton College and taught at Denfeld High School for over 40 years. She was a challenging and compassionate teacher and influenced the lives of many Denfeld students. It was her desire to help Denfeld students further their education that led to the establishment of the Maire V. Saltwick Scholarship.
