Baker College of Flint Awards $2,500 Scholarship to Brook Chapman

July 8, 2014

FLINT, Mich. – Baker College of Flint officials have announced Brook Chapman, of Durand, as the recipient of the $2,500 Ed Kurtz Leadership Scholarship.

This scholarship has been awarded annually since 2004 in honor of retired president and CEO of Baker College, Ed Kurtz. Students who exemplify Kurtz’s leadership style while exhibiting academic achievement, commitment to community service and a successful balance of work, family and school obligations are eligible for the scholarship.

“Brook knows exactly what she wants to accomplish and doesn’t let life’s obstacles deter her,” said Julianne T. Princinsky, Ed.D., Baker College of Flint president. “Her passion for helping others, caring for her family and succeeding academically is evident to everyone around her. She is a role model to her children and peers.”

Chapman started at Baker College by taking a few classes to discover her professional niche. Once it was clear that she wanted to a “make a real difference in people’s lives on a daily basis,” she began attending classes full-time to complete a bachelor’s degree in human services. She holds a 3.85 GPA and expects to graduate in spring 2015.

The single mother of two children, aged 3 and 9 years, works full time as a client service representative at Mott Children’s Health Center in Flint. This position allows Chapman to work directly with low-income families in Genesee County. Upon graduation, she hopes to continue in family support work, ideally working with children whose parents are imprisoned.
