River Valley Bank recently established a $500 scholarship at Bay College to be awarded to a Dickinson County resident pursuing a degree in Business.  “We are fortunate to have local businesses that believe in the importance of higher education,” stated Nancy Finch, Bay College Foundation Board Member.  “River Valley Bank’s scholarship will help a Bay West student reach their goal of receiving a college degree.”

The Bay West Foundation Board meets with local businesses to encourage scholarship development and hosts events to fundraise for campus improvements.  The support from residents and businesses of Dickinson County recently generated funds to create the Student Success Center at Bay West and establish a generous scholarship to help students pursue their dreams of a college education.

Founded in 1972, the Bay College Foundation connects businesses, organizations and individuals to the rewards of changing lives and advancing communities with higher education.  For more information on the Bay College Foundation or if you are interested in creating a scholarship or giving the gift of education, visit Bay College Foundation Website, email foundation_FROM_BAY_COLLEGE or phone 906-217-1700.
