The Board of Trustees of the Huron County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that a scholarship fund has been established in memory of Charles and Roseline Gliniecki. The family of Charles and Roseline Gliniecki established this fund in 2010 to honor their parents.

Although Charlie was not able to complete his formal education, he excelled in his self taught welding and mechanical skills. Roseline worked as a registered nurse at the hospitals that became Huron Medical Center in Bad Axe. As a clinical instructor at the Bad Axe Practical Nursing Program of St. Clair County Community College, she instructed over 400 practical nursing students in classroom and clinical facilities until her retirement in 1986. This scholarship is a tribute to their dedication to learning and making a difference.

This scholarship is dedicated to providing financial assistance to the adult learner.
