It takes hard work and dedication to graduate at the top of your high school class — whether you end up in the top 10 among 90 classmates or the top 35 among 350. Today we salute the hundreds of students who accomplished that rank in St. Paul and other east metro schools. This annual project invites schools to send us a list of their “Top Graduates,” however they define them. Some schools designate the traditional valedictorian and salutatorian, others define a Top 10, and some recognize a long list of students who have achieved honors status.

As college majors, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) is strong. Some 80 students featured will major in a bioscience field; another 80 in an engineering discipline; three dozen in computer science. Other graduates are joining the U.S. military or … [Read more...] about Top graduates 2019: When their hard work meets the future

Most artists will never find that kind of success, or the press attention she’s received, without participation the more traditional art eco-system.To wit, her latest exhibition, “Rorschach,” … [Read more...] about Art on Instagram: Does CJ Hendry’s Model for Success Have the Art Market on Edge?
U.S. 2018 Midterms CongressTwo years ago, as Americans were locked in a bitter dispute over the presidential election, Deb Haaland stuffed her suitcase full of green chiles and flew from her home state of New Mexico to North Dakota to join a different fight.Thousands of American Indians from tribes across the U.S. had descended on the windswept plains to resist the federal government’s incursion into native lands via—naturally—an oil project. The monthslong protest was unprecedented. Authorities maintained that the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would carry approximately 500,000 barrels of crude a day to Illinois, would create thousands of jobs and revitalize the local economy. But Native American communities and environmental activists objected to the pipeline’s route, which bisected the ancient tribal lands of the Standing Rock Sioux and tunneled underneath the Missouri River, the tribe’s primary water source. The Sioux feared the pipeline would threaten … [Read more...] about Native American Women Made History in the Midterms. Here’s Why It Took so Long
