The Advia Foundation is pleased to announce that 32 graduating high school seniors will receive a $1,000 financial scholarship to help pay for their continuing education. Advia celebrates and promotes education that engages, enriches, and inspires our young people to develop knowledge and skills for life-long financial competence.

“With the help of this scholarship, I am one step closer to meeting my future educational goals,” says Emilyann Koppel, a Marysville High School student and 2019 Scholarship recipient.  “Thank you for your support and confidence in me by selecting me as a recipient of this scholarship.”

Advia received over 75 applications from students in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Scholarships are awarded to students that exhibit academic achievement, leadership skills, and commitment to their communities.

Local recipients include Christina Berels and Jenna Stoldt from Cardinal Mooney Catholic School; Abigail Sawdon, Elizabeth Leto, Jenna Russell, and Emilyann Kopel from Marysville High School; and Haley Relkin and Riley Shagena from Port Huron Northern High School.
