Kristy’s Kids Fundraiser set for August 24

For over 12 years, the Kristy’s Kids Scholarship has been assisting Early Childhood Education students at Glen Oaks Community College through scholarships amounting to $39,970 since its inception in 2002.

The public is invited to join in support of the cause through the Kristy’s Kids Pulled Pork Barbecue Dinner on Fri., August 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sturgis Plaza, 901 S. Centerville, Rd., Sturgis, Mich. The public is invited to help support the Glen Oaks Community College Kristy’s Kids Scholarship Fund, honoring the memory of Kristy Isaac.

Kristy Isaac was a freshman at Glen Oaks Community College, enrolled in the Early Childhood Education associate degree program, when she died in January, 2000, as a result of an automobile accident. Toby Isaac and her family established the scholarship program because her daughter, Kristy, a Sturgis High School graduate, loved children and planned a career working with pre-school age children. “This helps fulfill Kristy’s dream of helping children and their families,” said Toby Isaac at the time.
