Approximately 100 students will be receiving over 170 scholarships offered through the college. The WSCC Foundation provides many of these scholarships through funds that are invested or raised by an annual fund drive or the major gifts campaign.

Service awards will also be presented to students who were active in various campus organizations during the 2012-13 academic year.

Along with students receiving their awards, WSCC alumnus Dr. Carolyn Brown, of the Manistee Veterinary Hospital, will be the distinguished alumni speaker.

Brown earned an Associate of Arts degree in 1998, with honors, from WSCC and she currently resides in Custer.  She is a 1996 graduate of Mason County Eastern High School and the daughter of Philip and Ruth Sommerfeldt also of Custer.

Brown received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2004 from Michigan State University. She has also completed coursework and training for veterinary acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.

Prior to taking her position in Manistee, Brown worked at several veterinary hospitals around the country as a small animal associate veterinarian. She has also started a home-based business providing acupuncture treatments for dogs and cats. In August 2002, she was a Miracle of Life worker at the Michigan State Fair.
