In 2018 Drew was a senior at Allegan High School and attended the Engineering/CADD program at ACATEC. He took advantage of any opportunity that crossed his path, including competing in the TRI Allegan sprint triathlon event for four years. Drew had congenital muscular dystrophy – and never let it slow him down.
Drew was blessed with the gift of a warm and caring soul. People were drawn to him naturally and his kind, generous nature ensured he always encouraged and lifted the spirits of others.
A member of the Class of 2019, Drew looked forward to graduating and exploring career opportunities. Sadly, Drew passed away on December 15, 2018.
Drew’s story isn’t over though; he impacted many students with his positive attitude and perseverance. This scholarship honors Drew’s spirit and impact on those who were fortunate enough to know him.
