This scholarship was established by James and Melissa’s children, James, Douglas, and, Candace. The Myers family was one of the six original families who started the Michigan College of Mining and Technology – Sault Ste. Marie Branch in 1946. Jim’s efforts, 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 LSSU intercollegiate athletic program.” Melissa was a vital link between the college and the community and was active in both campus and civic affairs. Awarded to an incoming freshman, selection is based on academic excellence.
