The board of the Michigan Boating Industries Association voted to contribute $10,000 to the Recreational Boating Industries Educational Foundation as a matching grant to help other donors commit to what it said is an important educational effort for the state’s boating industry.

“We are pleased to support RBIEF, as it is a true benefit to our members and addresses a critical industry need,” MBIA board chairman Tom Haag, vice president of Colony Marine in St. Clair Shores, said in a statement. “Our goal is to create awareness for the many jobs available in our industry and help fill the employee gap.”

The RBIEF board awarded $12,000 in scholarships at its June meeting. Since its inception the fund has distributed $354,396 to students and MBIA members for standard college or continuing education efforts.
