MADDY ZINKEN (L), SHELBY KLINE (M) AND APRIL HARRISON (R) of the Big Lake High School student council addressed the city council to ask about changing Minnesota Ave. — between Co. Rd. 43 and Eagle Lake Rd. — to “Hornet Way” to emphasize school pride. The student council received an endorsement from Big Lake City Council and were encouraged to continue to investigate the impact the name change would have on area residents and businesses and to work with city planners during the process.
