Meet our last 2021 scholarship highlight, Adyn Bower!
Adyn is a 2021 Graduate of Colon High School where she was in Drama Club, Spanish Club, Varsity Club, Key Club, and was a 5 sport athlete for all 4 years. She played volleyball, basketball, softball, track, and rode on the equestrian team for Colon High School. Adyn attended the Branch Area Careers Center Criminal Justice Program for 2 years while in high school and loved every minute of her time there. This sparked her desire to become a Michigan State Trooper upon completion of her college career. Adyn has always been very active in her community. She is a member of the Colon Grange, Mendon United Methodist Church, and the Colon Community Fire and Rescue Department. Her involvement in these organizations has molded her into the community minded individual that she is today. 4H has also played a huge role in the person she has become. She has shown multiple species of livestock at St Joseph County Grange Fair, and Horses at the Branch County Fair for going on 9 years. She is attending Glen Oaks Community College in the fall, pursuing an Associate's Degree in Business while playing on the Viking's Women's Volleyball Team. She plans on transferring to Western Michigan University after Glen Oaks to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Business. Upon completion of her college career, she hopes to be accepted into the Michigan State Police Academy and become an MSP Trooper. Even with her busy schedule and community organizations, Adyn finds time to do things she enjoys such as hunting, fishing, kayaking, and especially spending time with family and her friends.
