The Greater Albion College Access Network, in collaboration with Albion Public Schools, and the Manufacturing Education Fund at the Albion Community Foundation, Albion, Mich., awarded 16 scholarships to Albion Public School students in fourth through sixth grade for the summer 2012 "I Can Make It!" math and science camp.
The Jackson Area Manufacturer's Association offers the overnight camp, which gives kids the opportunity to design, build, and test various challenging projects, as well as swim and play at Jackson County Intermediate School District’s Camp McGregor on Crispell Lake.
The scholarships were made possible by Caster Concepts Inc., Albion, a manufacturer of industrial casters and wheels. Caster Concepts memorialized founder Richard H. Dobbins through the establishment of the Manufacturing Education Fund at the Albion Community Foundation in 2007.
