Katie Robinson Memorial Scholarship established, has goal of $10,000


SAULT STE. MARIE — A memorial scholarship at the Chippewa County Community Foundation has been established in Katie Robinson’s name, a 20-year-old woman who recently passed away in a car accident.

According to Debbie Jones, executive director of the Chippewa County Community Foundation, it was her idea to start the fund. 

“I called Jamie Gerrie, who is a close friend of the Robinsons, and asked if she thought Katie’s parents would be OK with the Chippewa County Community Foundation starting a scholarship in Katie’s memory,” said Jones. “Jamie contacted them and they were honored to have us start the Katie Robinson Memorial Scholarship. We have a number of scholarships ‘in memory of’ individuals and I think it is a great way to keep a person’s legacy alive.”
