The Sanilac County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Kobie Down, graduate from Carsonville-Port Sanilac School is the 2020 recipient of the Daniel James Brabant 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.

This scholarship has been created to commemorate the life of Daniel James Brabant. Dan was a graduate from Carsonville-Port Sanilac High School. He graduated with Honors from Michigan State University with a degree in Business and Economics and was an avid bow hunter, weight lifter, and Michigan State Fan.

This scholarship is administered by the Sanilac County Community Foundation.  For more information on scholarship opportunities through the Sanilac County Community Foundation, contact Melissa Anderson, Executive Director, at the Foundation office at 810-648-3634.

For Good. For Ever.
