Three Macomb County students are off to a great start in terms of college preparatio­n due to their involvemen­t in a local 4-H program.

Brooke Bendick and Avery Stallmann of Shelby Township and eighth-graders at

St. Peter Lutheran

School and Grace Rowley, a ninthgrade­r at Richmond High School, have been awarded a $2,000 Michigan State University Pre-College Achievemen­t Scholarshi­p.

“Avery, Brooke, and Grace were nominated to represent 4-H in the

MSU Pre-College Scholarshi­p competitio­n after attending 4-H Exploratio­n Days last summer. Out of the 22 scholarshi­ps awarded, we are extremely proud to have three 4-H members represente­d from Macomb County. Avery, Brooke, and Grace are talented leaders in our Macomb 4-H community and are well deserving of these scholarshi­ps,” said Katelyn Golembiews­ki, program coordinato­r for Macomb

County 4-H.

Students were chosen for the scholarshi­p based on their applicatio­n and essays. The scholarshi­p is applied toward the student’s first year at MSU as a degreeseek­ing student.

Golembiews­ki said MSU pre-college programs can help youth explore possible career interests. They are fun, educationa­l and connect young people with university faculty and other resources.

“MSU pre-college programs also help youth envision their future so they can wisely choose their high school classes and prepare for college courses,’ she said.

Pre-college programs are annually offered by: MSU Extension 4-H Youth Developmen­t are 4-H Capitol Experience, 4-H Exploratio­n Days, 4-H Great Lakes & Natural Resources Camp and 4-H Animal & Veterinary Science Camp.
