2018-19 Scholarship Winners

At the Fall 2009 general meeting, it was decided to begin a scholarship fund for area athletes. This program, which will award two $500 scholarships each year, began in the Spring of 2010. The scholarships are non-gender specific, and the winners are voted on by the membership. We are pleased to announce the recipients of this award for 2018 - 19:

  • Savanna Tate, Bridgman High School
  • Kaitlin Essig, Bridgman High School
