Pete Heyrman Scholarship Award hosts annual fundraiser
Each of the last four years, one male and one female student athlete at Munising High School received a $1,000 scholarship.
MUNISING, Mich. (WLUC) - A scholarship award started by a Munising graduate had its annual fundraiser Saturday. The Pete Heyrman Scholarship Award is named for a 1995 Munising graduate with muscle dystrophy.
Each of the last four years, one male and one female student-athlete at Munising High School received a $1,000 scholarship. Even while bedridden, Heyrman is still actively involved.
“He does this all from a bed. He organizes this, spends countless hours through the internet on the phone organizing all these donations and getting people to donate,” said Brad Heyrman, Pete Heyrman’s brother.
Pete Heyrman is currently 44 years old. His brother said doctors told the family Pete wouldn’t live past 25. Heyrman wants the scholarship to continue years after his brother dies.
