    Hold on to your golf clubs because June 27th, the date for the 18th Annual Steve Smith Charity Challenge, is coming up fast.  This year promises to be bigger and better as we will continue to fill up both 18s on the finest golf course in town, fun and game holes will provide a snack and craft beer to break up the golf, followed by entertainment from, "Jedi Mind Trip," a classic rock/80's cover band.  And, this year, one lucky team will represent MSU in the Acura College Alumni Team Championship at Pinehurst on October 27-30.

    Kris Daugherty, Niki Lechner, and Adam Pendleton traveled to East Lansing on April 24th for the Football Banquet.  As an extra bonus they met Paul Lang, who has been the recipient of the Club's Mitch Lyons Tight End Scholarship.  Paul is an outgoing senior that won four letters, appeared in 50 games, and started 15 games.  This Scholarship is one of four endowed scholarships that the Club has and the Club also support the Outstanding Junior Awards.  During the 2015-2016 school year, the Club was responsible for more than $40,000 in scholarships paid to MSU students and student-athletes.  Click to read more about out scholarship programs.

    West Michigan Spartans - Day of Service

    On April 16th, the West Michigan Spartans and Michigan State Extension 4-H Program of Kent County hosted a fun and rewarding service project and book drive.  Youth and Adults from the West Michigan area gathered together and created colorful, fleece blankets for children and teens in the hospital or in another situation in which they would benefit from a special hand-made gift.  In less than a few hours they created over 50 blankets and collected over 50 books!  Thank you to all of those who volunteered their time!
