C. Ernest Read Trust
A generous donation from the C. Ernest Read Estate enabled the Monroe County Community College Board of Trustees to establish this scholarship in honor of one of the founders of the community college.
Mr. Read was actively involved in the early stages of planning the MCCC campus and served on the committee that complied the initial guidelines for its development.
Mr. Read believed in education. A graduate of the University of Michigan, he spent his career at the Monroe Auto Equipment Company where he was chief engineer when he retired in 1969. A long-time resident of Monroe, Mr. Read was an active member of Christ Lutheran Church and an avid golfer.
The scholarship is designed to benefit a sophomore student who made a significant contribution to campus life during their freshmen year by helping to promote college ideals and improve campus life for other students.
