Scholarship funds running dry

A scholarship established in the memory of a local doctor may soon run out of funds.

According to Elizabeth Marckini, treasurer of the Cedar Springs Education Foundation, this may be the last year that the Dr. Charles DeVreugd Memorial Scholarship fund is able to award any money.

“It is about to come to an end unless someone, somehow steps in to save it,” she said.

The Dr. Chuck Scholarship Fund was established at the CS Education Foundation in 2003. It was begun as a way to pay tribute to Dr. Chuck who served this community for many years. The fund has been awarding  $1000.00 annually to a deserving CS Public School senior pursuing a degree in the field of human medicine.

Seven scholarships have been awarded since its inception, but the 2010 award is in jeopardy. The fund has a current balance of $471.95.  “Unless donations are received to continue, the fund will pay out a final scholarship this year and then come to an end,” said Marckini. “Please don’t allow that to happen, the need is greater than ever.  Now is your time to help continue Dr. Chuck’s legacy of helping those in need.”

Anyone who would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Dr. Chuck scholarship fund can send it to the Cedar Springs Education Foundation, 204 E. Muskegon, Cedar Springs, MI 49319.
