The Sanilac County Community Foundation is pleased to announce this year’s 2023 Sandusky High School graduate, Amelia Huysentruyt as the recipient of the Shelby Sanderson Combs Scholarship.

Amelia plans to attend Siena Heights University to study Music Theatre and Music. Such a passion sprung from her parents Jake and Liz Huysentruyt who are music educators. Consequently, Amelia was exposed to community theatre and piano lessons at a young age and grew to play trombone in the Sandusky Bands, become quite involved in the drama club, take up private voice lessons, but also be involved in Academic Games, Student Council, and the National Honors Society. Amelia is also heavily involved in St. Joseph Catholic Church where she was able to discern her passions through cantoring weekly.

The purpose of the Shelby Sanderson Combs Scholarship is to provide scholarship(s) for the benefit of deserving graduating seniors from Sandusky High School. The scholarship candidate must be accepted and planning to attend a Christian Church supported post-secondary education institution.

This scholarship is administered through the Sanilac County Community Foundation (SCCF). For more information on scholarship opportunities through the Sanilac County Community Foundation, contact the Foundation office at 810-648-3634.

For Good. For Ever.
