Judah Kay, of Three Rivers, Mich., has been awarded the Professor Emeritus Bernard Swartz Scholarship for Excellence in Mathematics.
Kay is a graduate from Glen Oaks Community College with an Associate of Applied Science in Technology and a certificate in Electrical Technologies.
The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a Glen Oaks student with an outstanding record in mathematics courses. Kay was recommended for the scholarship by Glen Oaks mathematics instructors.
Under terms of the scholarship, created through a donation by Bernard Swartz, a former professor of mathematics at Glen Oaks, the student must be transferring to a four-year university after graduation from GOCC. The scholarship is intended to help with education expenses at a four-year institution.
Kay is also the recent recipient of the $10,000 WMU Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship for Academic Excellence. He will be pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering at Western this fall.
