Holly, MI — May 15, 2020
Holly High School senior Peyton Loriaux was recently awarded Northwood University’s prestigious Junior Business Student of the Year Scholarship. Loriaux’s success is yet another example of Holly Area Schools preparing all Bronchos for success, whether that means college, technical training, skilled trades careers, or jobs right after high school.
“We are so proud of Peyton for this well-deserved honor and have no doubt he will continue to succeed at Northwood University and beyond,” said Scott Roper, Holly Area Schools superintendent. “He is yet another example of our district providing all Bronchos with the academic, real-world, and life skills needed to achieve and succeed.”
The scholarship will provide Loriaux with $5,000 per year, each year of the four-year business program. The honor also includes admission to Northwood University’s Learn About Business Camp, where students study entrepreneurship, leadership, management, marketing, and more.
According to Northwood University, located in Midland, the Junior Business Student of the Year award is “presented to a high school student who personifies integrity, responsibility, empathy, and achievement, which are attributes that align perfectly with the Northwood Idea.”
“Peyton has shown great promise for the business careers of the future at Holly Area Schools, and I wish him all the best in this next phase of his educational career,” said David Golec, a HAS business teacher. “To succeed in the business world, job candidates must demonstrate teamwork, problem-solving, and other key life skills, all of which he learned as part of a 21st-century education here at Holly Area Schools.”
