Blue Water Habitat awards first scholarships

(AREA) -- Blue Water Habitat for Humanity has awarded its first college scholarships to two St. Clair County women, thanks to the generosity of one Lexington resident. Maureen Power, a retired teacher, left a significant and unexpected gift in her estate plan, giving Blue Water Habitat the authority to use the money for any purpose. Barbara Ernsberger, Executive Director of Blue Water Habitat for Humanity, stated that to honor Power's career as an educator, the scholarships were awarded to Blue Water Habitat homeowners or children of homeowners. This year's recipients are Danielle Lipa, of Marine City and Meghan DePelsMaeker of Yale. Lipa is a senior at Oakland University in Rochester, continuing her studies in business administration and DePelsMaeker is a freshman at St. Clair County Community College, in Port Huron pursuing a career working with young children and special needs students.
