Since 1999, MFCS-Royal Oak’s first year with MacLean-Fogg, the Royal Oak plant has been awarding scholarships to students at Royal Oak High School (formerly Kimball High School). In 2014, the MFCS Royal Oak Scholarship recipient was Madison Hulswit of Royal Oak, MI. Her accomplishments at ROHS include being a sixth grade camp counselor, participating in a dance ensemble celebrating her heritage, and being a business cooperative student in the offices at Royal Oak High School.

Madison is attending Baker College of Auburn Hills to pursue a degree in Accounting or Financial Management. She intends to work for a non-profit organization, dedicating herself to “make sure every dollar can go as far as possible and stays where it will do the most good for people in need.”

MFCS Royal Oak presented a second scholarship to a senior at Romeo High School. The scholarship was dedicated to the memory of Ben Hessell, an engineer with MFCS – Royal Oak, who passed away suddenly earlier in the year. Ben graduated from Romeo High School in 2007 before pursuing an engineering degree at Lake Superior State University.

The recipient of this scholarship was Jason Sammut of Washington, MI. Jason’s accomplishments include All Academic Team for the Gridiron Classic Game at Ford Field, sixth grade tutor, youth counselor, and NHS member. Jason carried a 4.043 GPA in high school and excelled as a member of the Bulldogs’ football and baseball teams.  Jason is attending Michigan State University Honors College and wants to earn a degree in Mechanical Engineering, then attend the University of Michigan to pursue a degree in Aerospace Engineering.  The presentation of the scholarship to Jason took place during the Romeo High School graduation ceremony.  Eight members of the Hessell family along with MFCS Royal Oak management attended the event.
