Brunswick hands out annual scholarships

Brunswick Corp. awarded $56,000 in college scholarships to 28 sons and daughters of Brunswick dealer employees in the United States and Canada.

The Brunswick Foundation Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program recognized recipients for their academic excellence, leadership capabilities and civic involvement during the last school year. Recipients are chosen by an independent committee of academic professionals from Midwestern universities.

"We are honored that our daughter was chosen for one of the scholarships this year," Kerry Clark, owner of Jet A Marina in Calvert City, Ky., and the father of winner Shelby Clark, said in a statement. "Brunswick truly cares about its dealers, and it shows with programs like the scholarship program."

The money will help pay tuition fees. Scholarships are being awarded for the sixth year in a row.

Brunswick Dealer Advantage now offers 32 dealer support services to Brunswick marine dealers in the United States and 18 services in Canada. The services are designed to draw more retail customers, help dealers attract and retain employees, improve operations and lower costs.
