My name is Abby Lende the daughter of Darrell Lende, a member of the Cement Masons and Plasterers Local 633, out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I graduated from Win-E-Mac High School in May of 2020 as Salutatorian of my class with a 3.93 GPA. I was involved in numerous school activities including volleyball, golf, robotics in which I went to the State Tournament for three years, the RAD Drone Competition in which I qualified for the Worlds Tournament, Minnesota Honor Society, Student Council and Knowledge Bowl.

I want to thank the Patrick D. Finley Scholarship Fund for this scholarship. I will be attending Minnesota State University of Moorhead this fall and majoring in Computer Science.
