Scholarship at KHS created to honor the late Linda Lobeck


KINGSFORD — The family of Linda Lobeck has donated funds to Kingsford High School to establish a scholarship in memory of the longtime staff writer for The Daily News, who died Nov. 8.

This scholarship embodies her passion for working in the field of communications, which brought her in touch with many, many people in the community. She always had a place in her heart for stories about special individuals, education topics and civic events, among many others.

The Breitung Township Schools Board and Kingsford High School administration are pleased to accept the opportunity to work with the Lobeck family to honor her memory. She touched many people with her award-winning stories, and her compassion will live on through the good things she shared with the world.

The Linda Lobeck Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a Kingsford High School graduate in the Class of 2018.

Individuals interested in developing a scholarship can contact Rita Edberg, Kingsford High School scholarship coordinator, or KHS Principal Lyle Smithson at 431 Hamilton Ave. Kingsford, MI 49802 or by calling 906-779-2670, ext.5, for more information.
