The Robert S. Farda Scholarship at Bay College was established to assist Dickinson County students in pursuing a business or pre-engineering degree.
After graduating from Kingsford High School, Robert (Rob) continued his education at Michigan Tech University with degrees in business and electrical engineering. Throughout his career he has worked for Grede Foundry, Oldenburg Group and BOSS Snowplow.
Rob passed away in October 2019.
