Supporting Alma-High School Graduating seniors in the pursuit of post-secondary education in the field of auto mechanics or agriculture

Ryan died tragically on November 2, 1997, when he was struck while riding his bike to visit a friend; he was just 14 years old.  In an effort to turn this tragedy into something positive, the Ryan Owens Memorial Scholarship was established by his parents, Dave and Judy.

Señora Kaufmann Memorial Scholarship

 
   

The Señora Kaufmann Memorial Scholarship was established in November 2020 by the family of Sally Kaufmann to honor her decades of service to teaching and continue her legacy in foreign language and education.  Señora Kaufmann’s passion for teaching Spanish and Hispanic culture, along with her special gift for connecting with her students and colleagues, made her a beloved educator.

Sally Kaufmann was dedicated to helping students further their education, achieve their goals, and literally explore the world.  She was a loyal confidant to countless students with whom she shared her wisdom and listened to their dreams. It is her family’s hope that the Señora Kaufmann Memorial Scholarship will assist Alma High School and other Gratiot County students pursue their passion in foreign language, travel, and international studies.
