Great Minds Learning Center recently received a $2,000 grant from the John & Katherine Boentje Family Hibbing Foundation Fund.


The grant will be used for scholarships for reading students at Great Minds Learning Center in Hibbing.


“We are honored to have been selected for this generous donation,” said Marianne Jylha, executive director of Great Minds Learning Center.  “The Hibbing Foundation has given us a vote of confidence that we intend to prove worthy of.”


Great Minds Learning Center is a non-profit organization that offers specialized individual instruction in reading, spelling, writing and math. It was founded by Jylha in 2011 in Grand Rapids and has recently expanded to the Howard Court in Hibbing.


Scholarships for Great Minds Learning Center students are awarded in the form of a tuition discount.  Students must qualify for free or reduced lunch to qualify for the scholarships.


“My dream upon founding Great Minds as a nonprofit organization was that we could partner with philanthropists and other organizations to make services accessible to all families," Jylha said. "It is wonderful to have this dream come to fruition with the help and support of others.”
