The United Way of Southwest Michigan has announced the recipients of its Live United Scholarships for 2019. The United Way picks one student from Berrien County and one student from Cass County for the honors, which are given to students who demonstrate a commitment to volunteerism. Berrien County’s winner is Caleigh Dahn, a home-schooled senior who will be attending Northern Michigan University. The United Way says she has raised $15,000 for the Coloma Amicus Dog Park, organized food drives, made cancer clinic blankets, and helped with United Way’s School Supply Spectacular. The Cass County winner is Bailey Anson, a senior from Edwardsburg High School who will be attending Cornerstone University. She has organized backpacks of food for children, set up awareness events for Students Against Destructive Decisions, and cleaned up trash along highways. The two scholarship recipients each get $1,000.
