Chase Hanson is a full-time nursing student at UM-Flint. He received the Saab Signature Blue Service, the Leonard A. & Zelpha E. McKinnon, and the Harold M. Utley Memorial scholarships. "I'm thankful to not have to worry about the burden of student loans. The donors of these scholarships have inspired me to remain a motivated, successful student and have encouraged me to not put limitations on my future. I am very grateful for the benevolence of these donors, and I'm very appreciative of the scholarships I have received."

It was a celebration of the most successful capital campaign in the history of the University of Michigan-Flint. It was a showcase of the students, faculty, and staff that stand to benefit from the Victors for Michigan-Flint campaign for years to come. It was a night to give thanks to the thousands of generous donors, alumni, and friends of UM-Flint that gave in records numbers.
Immanuel Wright is a pre-nursing major and first generation college student. "UM-Flint has been such a blessing, the university is very inviting to any first generation students.
