Nearly 100 Students Receive Scholarship Awards
Nearly 100 graduating seniors from Charlevoix County high schools will receive a total of $205,288 in scholarship funds to help them launch into college and post-secondary education and training programs. While 2020 is a strange year for graduating and moving on to college, these students were grateful for the assistance through the Community Foundation. Scholarship funds were established by local citizens or groups to honor family members, community leaders, educators, and others who value continuing education.
Students shared their excitement and gratitude with receiving funding, stating that this support will allow them to focus on their education and earning a degree instead of their financial burden. Some students said that feeling the community’s support and recognition through their scholarship award meant a lot to them.
Each year the Community Foundation awards merit scholarships to outstanding local students entering the skilled trades, community colleges and 4-year colleges and universities. These students have demonstrated their eagerness to succeed beyond high school and have shown promise in their work ethic and in their academic achievement.
