The Montcalm Area Intermediate School District (MAISD) has teamed up with the Central Montcalm Community Foundation to establish an endowed fund for Montcalm County students. The MAISD Education Endowment will provide scholarships to our students as they matriculate to post-secondary education and technical training. 

These scholarship funds are for students who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and attend school in Montcalm County. As the fund grows, additional scholarships will be developed to assist students who attend programs operated by the MAISD. These may include those attending the Montcalm Area Career Center (The MACC) or those experiencing homeless episodes via the Homeless Student Support program.

Assisting in establishing scholarships and selecting recipients will be former MAISD staff. This advisory board consists of Bill Seiter, Paula Fortino, Helen Hamler, Rosalee Hull, and Jackie Kemler. The MAISD Superintendent, Dr. Scott Koenigsknecht, will also participate in the process. The advisory team represents over 150 years of service to communities, schools and students throughout Montcalm County.

The initial funds to establish the endowment were provided by the Bob Knott Family, at his bequest. Mr. Knott was a former special education teacher at Central Montcalm Public Schools. The endowment is a lasting legacy for our students. It provides financial support for students who face some of the greatest hurdles to continuing education and independence.
