The Sanilac County Community Foundation is pleased to announce this year’s recipient of the Lee and Thelma Flannigan Scholarship is Logan Solgat.
Logan is the son of Susan and the late Jerry Solgat of Marlette. He plans to attend Ferris State University to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering. While attending Marlette Jr./Sr. High School, Logan played soccer, basketball, and ran track. Along with sports, he was a member of the Science Academic Games team, National Honor Society, and the Business Professionals of America. Throughout his High School endeavors, Logan continuously kept a humorous personality and always made the best out of any situation.
The Lee and Thelma Flannigan Scholarship was established to assist Marlette High School graduates who desire to further their education. Mr. and Mrs. Flannigan both realized the importance of education. As a farmer, GM employee and a Marlette school bus driver, Mr. Flannigan knew the value of hard work. Mrs. Flannigan was a full time homemaker in the early years of her marriage and then pursued a career in nursing, being the oldest student in the Licensed Practical Nursing program in Bad Axe. She was a part-time EMT and then an LPN at Marlette Regional Hospital for 18 years.
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.
