Presented to Kinyon by Carole Chilton, the scholarship is given every year by the Crawford-Oscoda chapter of the MARSP.  Kinton was selected from several candidates, due in part to his success as a student and his commitment to continuing his education.  He expects to complete his degree from Kirtland in 2015 and transferring to Saginaw Valley State University to obtain a degree in Psychology or Social Work and will pursue counseling as his career.

Annually, more than 3,000 students attend a variety of occupational, skilled trades, two-year and transfer degree programs at Kirtland’s locations near Roscommon, Kirtland-Gaylord, Kirtland-West Branch and in Tawas.  Kirtland also offers a wide range of online courses and degrees, all of which can be completed from home.
