Chi Vue, the second youngest of nine children in her St. Paul family, knew that paying for college was going to be tough.
But now the Harding High School senior - and more than 300 other Twin Cities high school students - are getting a major financial boost in their pursuit four-year college degrees.
The Wallin Education Partners said Tuesday that it will give up to $16,000 over four years to 316 high school graduates from more than 50 metro schools. Wallin notified each student of their scholarships by e-mail in April and staged an in-person surprise for six of the students at Harding and four at South High School in Minneapolis to capture their reactions on video for this week's announcement.
