Brunswick hands out scholarships


Brunswick Corp. awarded scholarships to 28 sons and daughters of employees of its marine dealerships in the United States and Canada.

Each recipient will receive $2,000 to help pay tuition fees. The Brunswick Foundation Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program recognizes recipients for academic excellence, leadership capabilities and civic involvement during the past school year. Recipients are chosen by an independent committee of academic professionals from several Midwestern universities.

"I am very proud of the recipients who earned the Brunswick Sons and Daughters scholarship this year," said Jeff Hall, president of Lake Wylie Marina in Lake Wylie, S.C., and father to winner Maddison Hall. "They have worked extremely hard over the years to achieve what it takes to earn this scholarship. Congratulations to them, and thank you to Brunswick."

Brunswick Dealer Advantage offers as many as 31 dealer support services to Brunswick marine dealers in the United States and Canada. The tools are designed to help dealers attract and retain employees, draw more retail customers, improve operations and lower costs.
