KBEM/North High Radio curriculum student Art Colberg was known as a natural on the air during his time with the station between 1998 and 2001, and quick to help his fellow students get comfortable behind the mic. Even though he passed away in an accident in 2004, his memory has been continuing to help students in the Radio curriculum at KBEM. Each year since 2005, high performers in the class have gotten a boost toward their college goals through a scholarship established in Art’s memory. To date, over $35,000 has gone to help pay for scholarship winners’ post-secondary studies.
The Art Colberg Scholarship is funded in part by Bowling For Art, coming once again to Elsie’s in Northeast Minneapolis Sunday, October 6. Participants will enjoy unlimited bowling, a taco bar, live music, a silent auction and a funky jewelry sale from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
