The Foundation for Muskegon Community College 2015 Jayhawk Scramble and Jayhawk Scholarship Lunch on June 5 at University Park Golf Course raised a record $15,895 for MCC scholarships thanks to generous and enthusiastic sponsors, benefactors and participants.
The total represents a 16% increase in profits over the 2014 Jayhawk Scramble.
“It’s gratifying to work with the businesses and individuals who are committed to increasing access to higher education,” said Tina Dee, Director of the Foundation for Muskegon Community College. “I find it especially rewarding when our donors have the opportunity to learn about the positive impact of their support directly from FMCC scholarship recipients.”
At the Jayhawk Scholarship Lunch, which followed the competition, three MCC student scholarship recipients – TeAnna Friday, Zach Cooper and Chance Eigenauer – shared how their scholarships created educational opportunities that transformed their lives.
