Bonnie Verbrugge Memorial Scholarship:Bonnie Verbrugge was Office Manager at Manhattan Country Club for more than 25 years. Because the club employs so many college students as servers, pool staff, and golf course staff, she often became a mother figure to them. Bonnie loved working among the students, other employees, and members of the Manhattan Country Club. People who knew her said she was one of the nicest, most upbeat people they had ever known. Even while going through cancer treatments, she continued to work, and faced each day with an amazingly positive attitude. When she passed on, management, members, and the board of directors established a memorial scholarship in her name at the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation to recognize outstanding student employees.
The Greater Manhattan Community Foundation makes up to two (2) incentive grants of $300 each per academic year. This scholarship is available to current employees of the Manhattan Country Club as defined below.
