Westbrook girl is finalist for national volunteerism award

Katherine "Kate" Jorgenson, a 17-year-old senior at Westbrook-Walnut Grove High School, is one of six Minnesota students named a Distinguished Finalist by the 2020 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.

The Spirit of Community Awards is a nationwide program honoring young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism.

The daughter of Jim and Nikki Jorgenson of Westbrook, Kate created and continues to help run "Keeping Up the Kourage Foundation," which helps families cover medical expenses and offers academic scholarships to local students. She has helped organize fundraising events including concerts, pie and ice cream nights and calendar raffles.

For more on the honor, see the story on the Faith & Family page in the Feb. 12 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands tomorrow.
