Forest Lake golfer Jared Hunt has been awarded a Valspar Minnesota PGA Junior Golf Scholarship, the title sponsor announced July 11.

Hunt, who is set to enroll at the University of North Dakota this fall, will receive a four-year, $8,000 scholarship. Criteria considered in choosing recipients included grades, class rank, ACT/SAT scores, extracurricular activities and financial need as well as an essay and an interview.

Four golfers – two boys and two girls – are awarded the scholarship each year.

Hunt collected four varsity letters in golf and served as a captain in 2017. During his time at Forest Lake he served on the Student Council and the Youth Advisory Board and was inducted into the National Honor Society.

At North Dakota, Hunt plans to pursue a degree in architecture.
