Case High School Graduate Dwight Holley Earns Ford Blue Oval STEM Scholarship

09/14/2018

Case High School graduate Dwight Holley earned the Ford Blue Oval STEM Scholarship – earning $2,500 toward his higher education, renewable for four years!

The Ford Blue Oval STEM Scholarship provides roughly $500,000 in scholarships over four years to students interested in pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) fields.

To be considered for the scholarship program, students must have been associated with one of three Ford-supported STEM programs – For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, Ford Next Generation Learning or Ford High School Science and Technology Program.

"Dwight simply loves to learn. He is inquisitive and creative and has taken full advantage of the many opportunities Case High School and Racine Unified has to offer," school counselor Jen Muffick said. "A leader in SkillsUSA, Choir and Project Lead the Way, Dwight has left a positive mark on everything he has been a part of. He will put the Ford Blue Oval STEM Scholarship to good use as he continues to study engineering at the college level."

Holley is a 2018 graduate of Case High School. He took many Project Lead the Way courses, won several medals in Skills USA competitions and most recently had an internship position in the engineering department of Badger Meter, the first RUSD student to do so.

“I am incredibly excited to have won the Ford Blue Oval STEM Scholarship. I couldn’t have earned it without my fantastic STEM education from my high school experience in RUSD,” Holley said.

Holley is attending Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan. He plans to major in Electrical Engineering.
