GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A University of North Dakota junior is the recipient of the 2014 Dru Sjodin (shuh-DEEN’) Memorial Scholarship.

Maggie O’Leary is a Billings, Montana, native who is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English. She helped establish a new student organization called the Third Wave, which recognizes social inequities based on gender, sexual identity, social and economic background, and physical ability.

The scholarship is named in memory of a former UND student who was kidnapped and killed more than 10 years ago.

The award, which was established by the UND Alumni Association Foundation, provides funding for tuition and fees for a full academic year.
