FOUNDATION NAMES 2018 ALGER COUNTY SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS; EXPANDS PROGRAM
MUNISING, MI, June 6, 2018 — We're thrilled to announce the winners of the 2018 Eric and Danielle Beverly Scholarship Awards - Alec Blank (Munising High School) and Tori Tyner (Superior Central Schools). Since starting the program in 2006, we've awarded $6,500 to outstanding Munising High School seniors. We were pleased this year to offer an additional scholarship to students at other Alger County schools as well.
Alec, son of Libby and Steve Blank (Munising), has established himself as great leader both in the classroom and on the playing field. His accolades include National Honor Society membership and All-Conference recognition in football and basketball. Diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at the age of 10, Alec's perseverance in overcoming chronic illness recently earned him the 2018 Gil Heard Award from the UPSSA. Alex will pursue a degree in physical therapy at Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan.
Tori, daughter of Patricia and Terry Tyner, Jr. (Limestone), is known for her superior work ethic, leadership, and stellar academic performance. In fact, she graduated at the top of her class and was Class Valedictorian. She blazed a trail as one of the first female students to join the football team and has received numerous honors including an induction into the National Honor Society. Tori plans to pursue a nursing degree at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“Eric and I were both student-athletes in high school and college,” Danielle said. “We're grateful for the support that helped us pursue our academic goals and are incredibly blessed to now be able to help other young student athletes pursue theirs.”
Congratulations Alec and Tori!
