John J. MacGregor Scholarship: Total of $10,000
This scholarship is funded by a memorial fund and is open to students applying for the Technician Scholarship.
John MacGregor was a union-trained Master Plumber from Detroit who moved to rural northern Michigan and started a plumbing company in 1962, so he could enjoy the beauty and sports the area had to offer. He went on to build a 3.5 million+ company performing plumbing, HVAC and electrical construction and services, which is now celebrating its 50th year in operation. John was a huge proponent of young adults entering the trades, as well as a supporter of kids with learning disabilities like dyslexia who needed a voice to receive proper training. John passed away in 2009, still owning and working in his business at the age of 74, which he considered to be his “hobby”.
