AMASA--Do you value education, commitment and community? Bino (Albino) Webber did.
So much so that Bino had a day in his honor and a scholarship started in his honor in 1976.
All the Bino Webber Scholarship Committee members knew Bino at that time. Today, about half the committee members remember Bino, but all are committed to carrying on management of the scholarship. To do that, the committee relies on donations from our community and the annual bake sale while Santa is in town.
To make donations, contact a board member or send your donation to P.O. Box 137, Amasa, MI 49903. Volunteer committee members are Dale Steiro, Chrissie Heimerl, Carlyn Raduechel, Linda Colombino, Helen Hord, Carrie Steiro, Brenda Campbell and Lindsey Hilonen.
Scholarship applicants must be a resident of Hematite Township, a senior in high school and enrolled in an accredited college.
This year’s recipient is Elizabeth Fennick. She is the daughter of Russell Fennick and Yvonne Fennick and plans to attend the University of Northwestern Ohio, where she will study high performance technology.
The award will be presented on the Fourth of July at the park in Amasa.
