Beaver Island Lighthouse School Scholarship May 2011

The Beaver Island Lighthouse School 10-10-10 Scholarship was presented to Kayla Bell, of East Jordan, at the school's Spring 2011 Completion/Graduation Ceremony.

Beth Urech and Mark Gillingham were on hand to present the award at the Spring 2011 Completion/Graduation Ceremony held on May 11, 2011. The couple created the scholarship fund last year after being impressed by what they saw during a visit to the Beaver Island Lighthouse School. The 10-10-10 Scholarship is named for Urech and Gillingham's wedding date, October 10, 2010.

Urech said she and Gillingham were delighted to give Bell the $800 dollar scholarship. She plans to use it at Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City.

"I'm so happy that they do this," said Bell. "It helps so much."
