MAPSEF announces scholarship raffle
MARQUETTE — The Marquette Area Public Schools Education Foundation held the drawing for the “Impact-A-Life” raffle recently at the MSHS Homecoming Rally.
Judy Depetro was the $300 ticket winner and MSHS junior Thomas Lohfink will be awarded a $3,000 scholarship upon his expected 2021 graduation. The foundation congratulates both Thomas and Judy.
MAPS Education Foundation provides scholarships to Marquette Area Public School graduates and to teacher projects providing enhanced education. Monies for the “Impact-A-Life” Scholarship were raised through sales of $5 raffle tickets. Judy Vonck, MAPS Education Foundation Development Chair, said: “We would like to thank the Marquette community, especially the parents of Marquette high school students for embracing our scholarship raffle. Working together we can help our students reach their future goals.”
Last year MAPS Education Foundation gave over $150,000 in scholarships to 153 graduating seniors. Anyone interested in creating a scholarship in the name of a business or a loved one, or who wants to make a one-time donation can call the MAPS Education Foundation office at 225-4200 or visit http://mapseducationfoundation.weebly.com/
