Alumna Honored for Promoting Finnish Culture

Mary (Aho) Brunet, a 1991 Northern Michigan University graduate with a bachelor's degree in management, received the Hankookin Heikki Award for preserving and promoting Finnish culture in the Copper Country.

Brunet has worked in her community to discover and extend her Finnish heritage. She was part of this month's Heikinpäivä Midwinter Festival, hosted by the City of Hancock's Finnish Theme Committee, which endowed Brunet with her award. Read a Daily Mining Gazette feature story on Brunet here.
