The Livingston County Convention & Visitors Bureau has established an annual “Hospitality Star Scholarship” for 2020 to invest in the education of the tourism industry professionals in the Brighton-Howell Area.
The LCCVB will award two scholarships in the amount of $1,500: one to a current Cleary University
Hospitality student, and one to a high school senior in a Livingston County high school pursuing a degree in hospitality, outdoor recreation, marketing, or other related major. The applicant must meet the criteria and will be chosen by the LCCVB’s Education Committee.
LCCVB Board President Pam McConeghy believes that an investment in our students is an investment in our community and will continue to serve the tourism well.
“We want to help those who have chosen the hospitality and tourism industry and provide them with support and the tools they need to succeed. Their success will translate into economic benefits in our community and throughout the state of Michigan,” McConeghy said.
“I am proud of our Board of Directors for recognizing the importance of establishing an education committee to give back to students in Livingston County,” said Mary Robinson, executive director of the LCVBB. “As a former hospitality-and-tourism-management student, I know what support from a dedicated community can do.”
Robinson said she believes the bureau’s involvement with these students will set Livingston County up for a bright future of hospitality industry stars, encouraging young people to come to the area
for this field of study, or to return following their post-secondary education.
The recipient will be honored at the LCCVB’s Annual Partner Meeting on March 19, 2020, at Block
Brewing Company in Howell. Students can submit their application online by clicking here. The application deadline is Feb. 28, 2020
