Joe Matuszak Scholarship awarded

The Joe Matuszak Scholarship Committee of the Tesson Ferry Township Re-publican Club awarded its first scholarship to Lauren Kelley, who is home-schooled by her parents, Leonard and Gwen Kelley. The Joe Matuszak Scholarship, a $1,000 nonpartisan scholarship to any college, is named for the late Joe Matuszak, a dedicated Republican committeeman for Tesson Ferry Township for many years. Lauren won the scholarship for writing the best essay on patriotism and for her volunteer activities. The scholarship will be awarded annually.
