Mike James Memorial Scholarship
This memorial scholarship is established by the Musky Clubs Alliance of Wisconsin in memory of Michael D. James, a Manufacturer's Sales Representative for Ranger Boats. Mike James passed away in 2001 at the age of 46 from a heart attack. James was instrumental in establishing and supporting fundraising efforts to continue Wisconsin's environmental preservation, particularly in regard to fish restocking, habitat research and youth programs. His high moral and ethical character in his business practices, as well as his deep environmental concerns, are regognized by the awarding of this scholarship.
