Scholarship Fund Awards Four Grants
For the first time, the WCSA Scholarship Committee awarded four scholarships. Two scholarships were awarded to graduating high school seniors and two awards were granted to continuing education students. This was made possible by the generous donations the committee received from fellow snowmobilers and local snowmobile clubs
A $1,000 scholarship was awarded to graduating high school senior Jacob Betz from the Germantown Sno-Drifters snowmobile club. Jacob has a passion for snowmobiling which he credits his father as he would always ride in front of his dad on snowmobile rides. These rides sparked his interest in drawing snowmobiles and learning how they worked. Jacob is going to be study to become a mechanical engineer at Michigan Tech and his dream job would be to work at Polaris. Jacob is seen in the left image above next to his Dad, Robert.
A $750 scholarship was award to graduating high school senior Alexis Peters from the Sussex Sled Bugs snowmobile club. Alexis has been around snowmobiling her whole life. The feeling she has when seeing snow covered landscapes is indescribable and surreal. Alexis also volunteers to help her snowmobile club as often as she can and always tries to help anyone when they are in need. Alexis is planning on studying business management and international business in the fall.
