Partnership brings Polish students to Saint Mary’s

WINONA, Minn. — A three-way partnership is allowing three Polish students to attend college in the United States. The Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Winona campus is richer for their international presence and participation. The Wasie Foundation, the Gostomski Family Foundation and Saint Mary’s University join to offer a full scholarship each year to a qualified student from Poland. And each year the college hosts a lunch to let the students get to know and thank their benefactors.
