GENESEE COUNTY — The SET SEG Educational Foundation recently awarded Genesee Intermediate School District’s Genesee Early College (GEC) with a scholarship that will provide funding for students to attend the Michigan Association of Student Councils/Michigan Association of Honor Societies (MASC/MAHS) Summer Leadership Camp.
The school received $1,200 and plans to send three students to the camp that is hosted at Central Michigan University.
The MASC/MAHS Leadership camp takes place July 22-August 2 and teaches students leadership principles that will benefit their schools and communities. Through their work serving on committees and in councils, students gain hands-on experience that will assist them with program planning and evaluation.
Leadership Camp sessions address leadership styles, communication, organizational skills, public speaking, team building, project planning, and provide an environment for students to interact with peers from school districts throughout Michigan.
Scholarship recipients were selected from a competitive field of applicants. The application process required input from a high school principal and a Student Council or Honor Society adviser.
GEC received the award from the SET SEG Educational Foundation at a special presentation made during the Genesee Intermediate School District Board of Education meeting on May 28.
This is the Foundation’s sixth year of awarding the scholarships. The SET SEG Educational Foundation is a taxexempt philanthropic organization established in 2005 and has presented more than $80,000 in scholarships and awards to Michigan public schools. Its mission is to enable students to pursue enrichment opportunities that advance learning, leadership, and civic responsibility. Its parent company, SET SEG, is a nonprofit provider of complete insurance services to Michigan public school districts.— G.G.
