Meet our 2013 Dollars for Scholars Scholarship Recipients!

2013 Dollars for ScholarsOn Wednesday, May 22, we honored this year’s Dollars for Scholars scholarship recipients in a reception held at our Stadium Drive office.

Andrea Goodin, Co-Chair of the Dollars for Scholars Committee and Manager of our Mattawan and Lawton offices, welcomed the students and their families, saying, “I believe I speak for the committee and Consumers employees as a whole when I say that we are pleased to support the educational goals of our student members and future leaders.”

Our CEO, Kit Snyder, then congratulated the graduating seniors on their commitment to academic excellence and dedication to serving their communities. He also shared a bit of advice: “In college, make friends with the kids who study.”

As we recognized each student individually and presented them with their certificates and iPads, proud parents snapped pictures and younger siblings applauded.
