Whitesand First Nation visits Superior high school to make $1,000 donation to the school’s Aboriginal Student Council.

It was the school’s then-newly formed Aboriginal Student Council that really helped her get settled.

“When I first got here I had nowhere to go. I didn’t really know anybody,” she said.
