BAY CITY, MI - May 29, 2018 - Bay Area Community Foundation is pleased to announce that 302 Bay and Arenac county students will receive a total of more than $293,000 in scholarships for continuing education. Nearly 500 generous donors, scholarship recipients, and their families will gather at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Bay City on Tuesday, June 5 to honor the students' accomplishments.

Mitchell Rivard, past scholarship recipient, and current Chief of Staff, U.S. Representative Dan Kildee, will be the evening's featured speaker. He will offer advice to these students as they prepare for their future endeavors and honor the donors who made these scholarships possible.

"For the students, higher education means more job opportunity. And for our community, a more skilled workforce means a more vibrant local economy," said Diane Fong, president & CEO of Bay Area Community Foundation. "Bay Area Community Foundation will continue to work alongside donors in our community to transform the lives of our students and the future of the Bay Area."

Combined with the $200,000 awarded this year from the Bay Commitment Scholarship, Bay Area Community Foundation has been able to award nearly $500,000 to Bay and Arenac County students in 2018.

"We honor and congratulate these students for all of their hard work, and we look forward to hearing about their continued successes," said Fong.
