Back to the Bricks organization continues to GIVE BACK to the community

GENESEE COUNTY — Back to the Bricks will continue its yearly tradition of awarding assistance to high school seniors in Flint and Genesee County who are pursuing postsecondary study/training at a college or technical school.

Course work considered for assistance includes auto-body repair/painting, automotive design, auto mechanics, electrical/manufacturing/ mechanical engineering, robotics, sales and marketing, software development for automotive applications, welding, or a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) related program.

Back to the Bricks thinks continuing to provide this program, especially now during this past year and a half during the pandemic, is even more important. In the past four years, they have given away more than $40,000 in scholarships to our community students and are looking forward to awarding 2021 seniors this year.

Scholarship Committee member Dr. Jeffrey Drake says, “High school seniors in Flint and Genesee County planning to major in an automotive-related career area have the opportunity to apply for this excellent scholarship. Remember, the application deadline is May 7.”

To apply, visit the website for more details. Submissions are accepted until May 7. Visit backtothebricks.org/ scholarships/
