2022 Super Senior
This year’s Super Senior is Kari Vujovich.
Kari is starting a new chapter in her life this month as she retired from the South St. Paul Educational Foundation. For the past 17 years, Kari has served as the Executive Director at the of the Educational Foundation.
During the 17 years, Kari was instrumental in providing local students with scholarships, learning opportunities and other resources. Since 1984, the South St. Paul Educational Foundation has distributed over 6 million dollars in scholarships and Kari was at the helm for many of those years. Over the years, the Foundation continued and continues to find new ways to help students, including working with the SSP Garden Club in funding the annual field trip for local kindergarteners to the Dodge Nature Center, creating Mr. Otto’s Way, a program that provides winter clothing for elementary students or supporting the South St. Paul Theatre Department. Kari humbly credits these accomplishments as a team effort and not just herself. Kari states, “We are only as strong as the people who help us. The strength of the foundation really comes from them.”
In retirement, Kari is excited to spend time with her 2 grandchildren and to stay connected to the South St. Paul Educational Foundation. Congratulations on being named the 2022 Kaposia Days Super Senior.
