Bush’s painting.

Gates and registration open at 12:30 p.m. Local vendors and businesses will be located in the concourse highlighting the Greater Lansing community. The speaking engagement will commence at 2 p.m. followed by a 60-minute meditation and yoga practice.

Carl Parsell Scholarship winners will be formally recognized during the 27th Annual Carl Parsell Memorial Golf Outing on June 8, 2017.

Carl Parsell Scholarships may be used to cover a portion of educational expenses, including tuition, living expenses, and other required fees during the 2017-18 school year. Scholars may use the award to attend any United States accredited university, college, community college, junior college, two or four year accredited degree-granting institution, or vocational training institution that grants a certification or license. Scholarship candidates must have completed a high school education or its equivalent, on or prior to June 30, 2017.
