July 24, 2012

Local student awarded $1,000 for college for winning Third Place in #mi2020 Scholarship Competition

FERNDALE–Last night, Senator Vincent Gregory (D–Southfield) presented Ferndale High School graduate Natalie Berger with a $1,000 scholarship award at the Ferndale Board of Education meeting. Natalie received the award for her Third Place finish in the #mi2020 Scholarship Competition.

“Natalie’s video was very moving and it embodied the joy and excitement of youth, as well as the concerns for the future, and I am very proud of her,” said Senator Gregory. “Natalie is a prime example of the promise and creativity Michigan’s young people hold and I know that she has a bright future in film or anything else she puts her mind to. I am pleased that we could help her pay for college next year, but more importantly, I hope her video will help inspire the Legislature to take action and pass the Michigan 2020 Plan to make higher education affordable for all Michigan students.”
