ROSCOMMON – The Kirtland Community College Foundation recently announced that Janelle Greer of West Branch will receive $500 for the 2010-11 academic year, awarded through the Robert Bovee Scholarship for Health Sciences fund. Greer is currently pursuing an associate’s degree in nursing at Kirtland.
The scholarship fund was created in honor of the late Robert Bovee of Grayling, who in 1966 was one of the first six board members to help determine the direction of Kirtland after voters in six K-12 school districts voted to establish the two-year college.
The Kirtland Foundation is a non-profit organization with the mission of helping to provide educational benefits, such as scholarship programs, to the college district and its students.
Annually, about 3,200 students attend a variety of certificate and two-year degree programs at Kirtland’s four locations – the main campus near Roscommon and the Michigan Technical Education Center (M-TEC) in Gaylord, as well as in Grayling and West Branch – with the college’s service area including all or parts of Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw, Roscommon, Otsego, Kalkaska, Missaukee, Gladwin and Alcona counties, and the surrounding areas.
