September 2018 News Web Exclusive

Brunswick recently announced the winners of the 2018 Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program.  A one-year, $2,000 college scholarship was awarded to each of 30 deserving students of Brunswick dealer families from both the U.S. and Canada. 

"For the past eleven years, the Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program has allowed us to help our dealers, their employees and their families in a very special way," said Kirsten Schuchardt, director of sales and dealer service for Boating Services Network.  "Brunswick Corporation remains committed to providing the best dealer support services in the industry, and we congratulate all of the winners for their hard work, and wish them the best of luck for the upcoming school year." 

With a focus on academic excellence, leadership capabilities and community involvement, the Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program is available to children of full-time employees at Brunswick marine dealerships.  Recipients must be 23 or younger and attending an undergraduate college, university, or vocational school. 

"These scholarships have allowed me to pursue my education without potentially burdening my family with the expenses," said scholarship winner Michael Zack, whose father, Steve Zack, is a master technician at Basa's Marine, Inc. in Bolingbrook, Ill. "As such, I am thankful for being awarded scholarships by the Brunswick Foundation, as they have helped me to achieve my goals."

Brunswick Dealer Advantage and the Brunswick Foundation have awarded over $600,000 during the past 11 years to more than 300 students from Brunswick marine dealerships in the United States and Canada. This year's scholarship recipients were chosen by an independent committee of academic professionals from leading Midwest universities.

"I am so grateful to Brunswick for awarding my granddaughter, Amelia Haydel, with a scholarship this year," said Diane Haydel, owner of Metro Boating in Harvey, La.  Amelia's father, George Haydel III, is the vice president and general manager at Metro Boating, and also the third generation working at the dealership. "Our family has bene?ted from the generous support this scholarship provides, as Amelia continues her academic study in the ?eld of medicine." 

The Brunswick dealer scholarship program is a key part of Brunswick Dealer Advantage, the Boating Services Network's dealer services o?ering, designed to help marine dealers in the U.S. and Canada attract more customers, reward and retain employees, and improve operational e?ciencies.
