Hi my name is Ryan Kenny and I am from New Buffalo, Michigan and I am one of the very lucky recipients of the Adult Scholarship from The Pokagon Fund! I am attending my final year at Grand Valley State University with this award. The money that The Pokagon Fund has given me will cover a lot of the cost that my post secondary education entails and I am very grateful for that blessing. This adult scholarship will allow me to focus on finishing my Hospitality and Tourism Management degree and will allow me to learn the vital tools that I will use for the rest of my professional career. I really enjoy making other people happy and with my Hospitality degree with an emphasis in meeting and event management, I will be able to plan amazing events for something I am passionate about and I can make a positive influence in the world. I will be graduating from Grand Valley State University in April of 2018! I sincerely thank everyone who has blessed me with this opportunity to further my education, especially The Pokagon Fund, I couldn't do it without your generous award and I am forever grateful for that.
