St. Cloud Technical High School Reveals New Logo
St. Cloud Technical High School is unveiling new activities logo.
 
Students, staff, alumni and the community were asked in February to submit ideas for a new logo.

From the 60 designs submitted, the Community Engagement and Communications committee was able to narrow it down to five, and in April asked for more suggestions from the public.

Thousands of comments were made which resulted in a close race.

The new logo will be used for internal communications, team and group apparel and internal signage.

After more than 2 decades of service, Steven Bresnahan is planning to retire from the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud.

Catholic Charities says Bresnahan joined in June 1994 and now works as the executive director. During his tenure the Emergency Services has about tripled in the amount of people it serves.

Bresnahan adds he has no immediate plans after work, but will never truly retire. With his wife of 42 years by his side, he says, “I am listening for opportunities.”

The process to find his replacement will begin in the next 6-9 months.

Catholic Charities is a nonprofit organization which advances the charitable and social mission of the Diocese of St. Cloud, according to its website.

WILLMAR, Minn. (AP) - The remains of two World War II soldiers from Minnesota will be returned to their respective hometowns this Memorial Day weekend, nearly 72 years after their deaths.

Navy machinist John Anderson was killed at age 24 on the beaches of Normandy, France, on June 6, 1944, D-Day.

Anderson's remains were disinterred from an unknown grave in a Normandy American Military Cemetery and positively identified in 2015. His remains will arrive Thursday in Willmar, where a public memorial service and interment will be held Saturday.

Army Pvt. John Sersha was killed at age 20 in a German-controlled area of the Netherlands in September 1944.

Sersha's remains returned home Tuesday after they were disinterred from the Neuville Military Cemetery in Belgium. His remains will be buried Saturday in Eveleth.
