The Jim and Katherine Brown

Coopersville/MSU Scholarship

2010 Coopersville Grad & 2015 MSU Graduate:  Mike Spicer is now an Account Manager for CH Robinson Worldwide

In 2011 Panthera Edge did not receive any scholarship applications; therefore, in 2012 we granted 2 scholarships.  The MSU scholarship was received by Nathan Umlor and Shane Snyder.

Nathan graduated in 2016 and works for MSU in the Contracts & Grants Dept. while working on his Master's Degree. Shane graduated in 2017 with a Civil Engineering BS and works for Rowe Professional Services Co.

Our fifth scholarship was awarded to Kyle Meintsma in 2013.  He graduated from MSU in 2019 with a Forestry degree, serves as 2nd lieutenant in the Army National Guard, and works for Bartlett Tree Experts.

Chandler Panetta, 2014 CHS graduate, graduated with a BS in electrical Engineering from MSU in 2019.
