GOOD WORKS FOR OUR COMMUNITY’S YOUTH – SCHOLARSHIPS, AWARDS AND GRANTS
Every year, since 1990, we have awarded scholarships to deserving graduating seniors and continuing college students from Frankfort-Elberta and Benzie Central High Schools.
To date, our scholarship awards have totaled $296,000 and have assisted 104 of our young people to pursue their college careers.
