DUNBAR, Wis. — Northland Scholars Academy had a ribbon-cut- ting ceremony with the Dickinson Area Chamber of Commerce in October to celebrate their newly opened college preparatory boarding school.
Northland Scholars Academy opened Aug. 15 under the executive leadership of President Jeff Kahl, Vice President John Twohig and Head of School Robert King, along with teachers and support staff.
Formerly known as Northland International University, the academy is an international, college-preparato- ry, dual-enrollment boarding school for high school students in grades 9 through 12. This traditional, conser- vative American school serves a global constituency regardless of national or faith traditions.
On a 600-acre campus dedicated to Christian camping since 1959, stu- dents from around the world also experience the auxiliary camp facilities and activities outside the classroom. The academy actively recruits from 35 countries and anticipates enrollment to reach 400 students by 2020.
The academy features credentialed teachers, emerging classroom tech- nologies, accredited and high-level curriculum choices, AP classes and partnerships with numerous colleges and universities, including Bay College and the University of Wisconsin.
The academy prioritizes enrollment to students who are dedicated to edu- cational excellence and personal devel- opment and who desire to impact the world in high school.
Northland Scholars Academy also offers summer and winter language and adventure programs.

UPHS Welcomes Podiatrist Brad Benson
MARQUETTE - UP Health System - Marquette is pleased to wel- come podiatrist Brad Benson, DPM. Dr. Benson grew up in Marquette before earning his undergraduate degree at Northern Michigan University. He went to Medical School at Kent State University and did his residency at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center/Case Western Reserve.
“My family and I had a strong pull the area having grown up in Marquette,” Dr. Benson said. “My wife and I moved away to the city for medical school and residency training always knowing that we wanted to relocate back to a more rural area to help care for the community and raise our daughter. Marquette was the per- fect place.
Dr. Benson recently served as a Podiatric Medicine/Surgery Resident at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. He is certified in Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support, and he has an Ohio Medical
Training License. Dr. Benson is also a member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, American P0diatric Medical Association and Ohio Foot and Ankle Medical Association.
“My training provided me with a diverse background in all foot and ankle problems and I am confident in treating the majority of cases that will come through the door. That being said, one of my passions is limb sal- vage, especially in the diabetic cohort. I would love to continue on with the work, which has been started in mak- ing Marquette the regional location for managing these complex patients.”
