Schmit endowment fund, held in the community foundation, for $1,606.30 to Bay de Noc Community College Vice President of Advancement Kim Carne. Mr. and Mrs. Schmit were longtime residents of the area, involved in the community and cared about people, especially those in their community. They wanted to make a difference and started the Robert F. and Anne M. Schmit Endowment Fund with the Community Foundation for Delta County, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Upper Peninsula. The Schmit Fund provides annual gifts not only to Bay College but also to a number of other organizations and will continue to in the future thru their endowment fund held by the Community Foundation for Delta County. Carne said, “Bay College is grateful to Robert F. & Anne M. Schmit endowment fund for their wonderful gift to Bay de Noc Community College. Their gift will be used to provide scholarships to a number of students with financial needs. It is my pleasure on behalf of the Bay College Board, Staff and Students that I “thank” the Schmit fund, family and community foundation for the financial support provided to the college.”
