The Sanilac County Community Foundation announces that Chloe M. Collins graduate of Peck High School, is this year’s recipient of the Mike Stevens Scholarship.
Chloe plans to attend Central Michigan University this fall to pursue her dream of becoming a photographer. In high school, she kept herself busy with activities such as President of the symphonic band, Vice President of her class and the Peck Chapter of the National Honor Society, Secretary of the Student Council, member of the reading faction, libero of the varsity volleyball team, captain of the varsity cheerleading squad, member of the varsity softball team and colorguard squad, and member of the yearbook club. Chole’s time in high school was made decidedly more difficult following the death of her 17 year old brother, Corbin, during her junior year. She worked tirelessly to finish her high school career strong and is very excited to continue her education at CMU.
The Mike Stevens Scholarship was established in 2005, in Mike’s memory, by his family and coworkers at the Sanilac County Department of Human Services. It is available to area high school graduating students who have maintained a 2.0 GPA and have been accepted for admission to an accredited college or university. Eligible students must have demonstrated the desire and determination to meet and overcome personal/family challenges or obstacles in achieving his/her educational goals.
This scholarship is administered through the Sanilac County Community Foundation (SCCF). For more information on scholarship opportunities through the SCCF, contact Melissa Anderson, Executive Director, at the Foundation office at 810-648-3634.
