MAPS foundation awards scholarships
To the Journal editor:
The Education Foundation for Marquette Public Schools held our local scholarship recognition event on May 19 at 6:30 p.m. for our 2020 graduating seniors. The event can be viewed at https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/events/marquette-senior-high-school-marquette-mi/evt87146b46a4 or bit.ly/2020EdFoundationScholarships.
This year we awarded scholarships to 111 graduating seniors. The amount awarded to the students in scholarships totaled $135,758 dollars. A great start to support these students as they begin their post secondary education experience.
Thank you to everyone who made this event happen;, the donors, the families, the educators, the Education Board members, the STUDENTS and this year a huge thank you to Eric Hamerstrom for the virtual event.
