The Eric & Danielle Beverly Scholarship Fund
Established in 2007 for Munising High School students, this annual program was expanded in 2018 to include one additional award for graduating seniors from other Alger County high schools.
Administered in partnership with the Alger Regional Community Foundation, this annual program awards two students a one-time grant in the amount of $500. Preference is given to student-athletes who demonstrate leadership, academic excellence, and plan to pursue a baccalaureate degree in a medical-related field.
Applications and information are available each spring at Munising High School and online. Congrats to our 2018 Scholarship winners – Alec Blank (Munising High School) who is attending Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan; and Tori Tyner (Superior Central Schools) who is going to Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
