WITC set to welcome “rock star” Solon Springs senior, recipient of $10,000 Herb Kohl scholarship

Solon Springs High School student Hannah Koivisto earned a $10,000 Student Initiative Award from the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation, the organization recently announced.

The intent of the Initiative Scholarship is to recognize students who put forth extraordinary effort to do their best in the classroom and have overcome significant obstacles or adversity.

Solon Springs Principal Holly Jones called Koivisto a “rockstar” student.

“She’s a really kind, passionate, empathetic individual — just one of those seniors we’re proud of,” Jones said. “She is really sensitive to social emotional health. I think that’s her career path.”
