Scholarships Awarded at Tailgate Events

As part of Mid Michigan College’s effort to empower, support, and connect with local communities, the College hosted tailgate events and scholarship giveaways at the Farwell vs Webberville, Gladwin vs Harrison, and Beaverton vs Clare varsity football games. The event at Mt. Pleasant High School was canceled due to weather.

College representatives attended each game and welcomed attendees with giveaways and free refreshments, purchased through local sports booster associations.

“We want to encourage community members to attend their hometown events, support local student-athletes, and connect with Mid Michigan College,” explained Amy Lince, Director of Community Relations at Mid.

During the game, two students from each participating high school competed in a fun, interactive scholarship giveaway contest. Each team of two stood 15 yards apart with one student throwing 10 Mid Michigan College footballs and the other attempting to catch them in a basket. Both members of each winning team received a $500 scholarship to Mid Michigan College. The remaining participants each received a $100 scholarship to Mid.
