Congratulations 2014 Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to our 2014 scholarship winners! The three exemplary students that received these scholarships were Jonathon Gardner, Zachary Kraut, and Aaron Fischhaber.

Jonathon Gardner is graduated this year from Swan Valley High School. Upon application for this scholarship, his plans were to attend Delta College and begin the Chemical Process Operator program. Jonathon is active in his church and the Boy Scouts of America. In addition, he was an active member of the National Honor Society and the Business Professionals of America group at school. According to Jonathon, he is “not afraid of hard work.” It is clear that this young man will do what it takes to become successful in the manufacturing industry.

Zachary Kraut is the second recipient of a scholarship. Zachary graduated this year from Bay City Central High School. His intention was to attend Delta College and begin the Mechanical Technology program. While in high school, he excelled in the classroom and at sports. Zachary also works two jobs: at Vantage Plastics and Consumers Energy. Starting to work in the manufacturing industry so early in his career proves that Zachary is working hard towards his goals.

Finally, there is Aaron Fischhaber, who graduated from Bay City Western High School in 2009. Aaron is attending Delta College and is in the Chemical Process Operator program. He began working at his family’s farm, then went on to work at a greenhouse and eventually at Dow Corning as a SEED. While there, he met people that were process operators and realized that is what he wanted to do. Once he had that revelation, he did not waste any time and is now chasing his career goals.
