The Sanilac County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Kimberly Abrego, graduate from Peck High School, is one of the recipients of the Kim Rhead Leadership Scholarship for 2023.

Kimberly Abrego’s parents are Bret Abrego and Lisa Light-Abrego. She graduated from Peck High School, where she played volleyball her senior year and played the clarinet in the school band and was able to obtain the first chair position the last few years of her high school career. Kimberly is attending Michigan State University, where she is majoring in Crop and Soil Sciences and minoring in Environmental Studies and Sustainability.

The Kim Rhead Leadership Scholarship was established in 1999. Kim Rhead is a former state legislator from the 83rd District. He and his wife, Margaret, decided to start a scholarship fund to give something back to the community where they lived and raised their family for so many years. This money goes to help students active in their school, church, and community, but who may fall through the college funding cracks. Awards are to go to gifted students, with special consideration to students that may not qualify for other assistance.

This scholarship is administered through the Sanilac County Community Foundation.

For Good. For Ever.
