This scholarship was created in memory of Shannon Smith - a life-long native of Cheboygan, Michigan, whose passions were hunting, fishing, dog training, along with many other outdoor activities. She was admired for her vast knowledge of northern living regarding her love of nature, horses and her dogs. She was a graduate of Cheboygan Public Schools; and advanced her education first with a certificate in Cosmotology before becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist ... whose smile would light up any room.
This scholarship will be awarded annually to a graduating high school senior from Cheyboygan High School or a non-traditional alumni from Cheyboygan High School. (A non-traditional student is someone who is choosing to return to school after an extended absence.) Applicants may attend any college or university and must be majoring in either Dentistry or a health-related field of study.
Applicants will be asked to write an essay about their favorite season in Michigan and why they chose it.
Financial need will be considered.
