The Sanilac County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Kobie Down, graduate of Carsonville-Port Sanilac High School is one of the 2020 recipients of the Eleanor M. Bowman Scholarship.
Kobie is the son of Roger and Jammie Sampier and Michael and Bobbi Down. He grew up loving animals when he was young and also like practicing archery in his spare time. Kobie went to Carsonville-Port Sanilac Schools his entire school career. During high school he was in the National Honor Society and Student Council. He decided to look into jobs in the medical field because he had health issues which caused him to go to the doctors often when he was younger. Last summer Kobie went to Delta Health and Wellness Camp, while there he tried many health fields including respiratory therapy, which he enjoyed and is now planning to pursue a career in. This fall he plans to attend St. Clair County Community College to study respiratory therapy.
Eligible applicants for the Eleanor M. Bowman scholarship must be graduating seniors of Carsonville-Port Sanilac High School who are in need of financial assistance to attend college in the field of music or music education. If there are no graduating students entering the field of music or music education, the scholarship may then be given to a graduating student(s) with need of financial assistance.
