Baker College of Port Huron Presents $2,500 Scholarship to Katelyn Hagans

July 16, 2014

PORT HURON, Mich. – Baker College of Port Huron officials have selected Katelyn Hagans 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.
 
“We had a pool of very strong applicants for the scholarship this year, but Katelyn was the unanimous choice of the committee as she best exemplifies the leadership ideals of Ed Kurtz,” said F. James Cummins, president Baker College system. “Katelyn models outstanding dedication to her family, work, school and country.”

Hagans is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business management, and plans to continue to attend Baker College full time the next four quarters in order to graduate in spring 2015. She also works full time at First Vehicle Services, a provider of contract fleet maintenance and management services, as parts manager, a job for which her service as a mechanic in the Army helped prepare her.

As a student, employee and mother, Hagans displays a relentless focus on her goals; first and foremost, to set a good example for her 7-year-old son and two stepsons, aged 11 and 13.

Academically, Hagans has earned a cumulative 3.72 GPA and takes understandable pride in her perfect 4.0 GPA this spring quarter, an accomplishment that landed her on the Baker College President’s list.
