Two Rockford High School students, Elyse Sholtis and Alex Quinn, were among the eight winners of the $2,000 Lake Michigan Credit Union Hutt scholarship. Winners of the Lloyd F. Hutt Scholarship Award were selected by an independent committee appointed by the board of directors of Lake Michigan Credit Union.

The judges of this contest are persons who are area professionals from all walks of life. All entries were submitted to the judges with no identifying marks or symbols, which show either the name of the applicant or the school they attend. The scholarship committee’s principal determining factor in selecting award recipients is the applicant’s passion for the topic. Additionally, the committee used the following criteria in judging responses to the topic: comprehension of subject, organization, language use, originality, clarity, spelling and grammar. Scholarship recipients were selected without regard to their race, religion or gender. This scholarship was established in 1991 to honor Lloyd F. Hutt’s contribution to the formation and success of the organization.
