The Sanilac County Community Foundation is pleased to announce this year’s recipient of the Lee and Thelma Flannigan Scholarship is Emma Albertson.

Emma is the daughter of Candy and Daniel Albertson. Throughout high school, she was involved in varsity track, varsity cross country, national honors society, student council, youth advisory council, business professionals of America, and health occupations of America. Emma will be attending Grand Valley State University to pursue pediatric nursing.

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.

For Good. For Ever.
