The family of Hannah Glair announced the inception of the Hannah Lorraine Glair Memorial Scholarship. Under the administration of the Stockbridge Area Educational Foundation, one $500 scholarship will be awarded each year in Hannah Glair’s honor, beginning with this year’s Stockbridge High School graduating class.
Students who wish to apply for the scholarship are asked to submit two letters of recommendation and meet the following criteria: A minimum 2.5 grade point average or above, have demonstrated a community service commitment, be a kind and caring person, be goal oriented and be a team player.
“We are so excited that this has been set up quickly enough to have the first recipient be a classmate of Hannah’s,” said Julie Glair, Hannah’s mother. “We’re sure this would please Hannah greatly.”
Hannah Glair, 17, of Munith lost her life in a car accident Nov. 15, 2018.
Initial funding of the scholarship was provided through donations from Kerri Allen, teacher at Smith Elementary School and area business owner. Donations for further support of this scholarship may be sent to Superintendent Karl Heidrich at 100 Price Ave, Suite A, Stockbridge, MI 49285. Checks should be made out to SAEF with a clear note in the memo line that the funds are to go to the Hannah Glair Memorial Scholarship.
The Happy Hustler’s 4H Club is currently selling Hannah Glair Memorial T-shirts to raise funds to help with an annual award given to qualified 4H members at the Ingham County Fair.
“We are hopeful this will be put in place by this year’s fair,” Julie Glair said.
