Mid tailgate

GLADWIN – As part of Mid Michigan College’s effort to empower, support, and connect with local communities, the College will be hosting a tailgate event and scholarship giveaway at the Gladwin vs Farwell varsity football game on Friday, Sept. 13 at Gladwin’s Brokoff Field.

College representatives will be at the field starting at 6 p.m. with free refreshments, generously supplied by SpartanNash, and giveaways.

“We want to encourage community members to attend the game, support local student-athletes, and connect with Mid Michigan College,” explained Scott Mertes, Vice President of Community Outreach and Advancement.

During the game, two students from each participating high school will compete in a fun, interactive scholarship giveaway contest. Each team of two will stand 15-yards apart with one student throwing 10 Mid Michigan College footballs and the other attempting to catch them in a basket. Both members of the winning team will receive a $500 scholarship to Mid Michigan College. The remaining two participants will each receive a $100 gift card to the Mid Michigan College Bookstore.

Gladwin and Farwell high school students can enter the contest Monday, Sept. 9 through Thursday, Sept. 12 at midmich.edu/team-toss-challenge or by scanning the featured QR Code with their smartphone.

“The College has always been a community partner and is increasing efforts to support local communities across mid-Michigan. Mid’s mission is to develop knowledge and ability to empower learners and transform communities. In addition to serving nearly 5,000 students from the mid-Michigan area, we partner with a variety of local organizations including employers, service organizations, and community groups to help achieve this mission,” noted Mertes.
