The James C. and Melissa H. Myers Scholarship was established by their children, James, Douglas, and, Candace. The Myers family was one of the six original families who started the College of Mining and Technology – Sault Ste. Marie Residence Center in fall 1946. Jim’s effort, vision, and determination to build a first-class athletic program and university, and his success as a coach, resulted in his induction into the University’s Hall of Fame as “the father of the school’s intercollegiate athletic program.” Melissa was a vital link between the college and the community. She was active in both campus and civic affairs. Awarded to an incoming freshman, selection is based on high school GPA, ACT, and class rank.
