Lowell and Marge have believed in the power of an excellent education and have demonstrated it with their commitment to The Thief River Falls Education Foundation.
Lowell and Marge Swenson came to Thief River Falls in 1959 to work with Dow Key. Lowell later went on to work with Arctic, becoming the President/CEO. Mrs. Swenson became extremely active in the community. Their sons; David, Alan, Robert and Philip all graduated from Lincoln High School and have gone on to lead successful lives in their chosen fields of interest. The Swensons have definitely felt the quality of education their sons received, enabled them to go out into the world and pursue their dreams.
The pursuit of dreams, is something that the Swensons have felt strongly, needs to be encouraged in students. Opening horizons to youth, by offering them innovative programming in addition to a solid, strong educational base, allows children to expand and to fully develop themselves, as individuals.
The Swenson’s keen interest in education and their generous donations has helped the TRF Education Foundation fund a great number of innovative projects within the school that would not have otherwise been possible.
