A pair of Glen Oaks Community College student-athletes was named recipients of the Jim Bishop Athletic Scholarship.
Three Rivers resident Jessica Mathews and Constantine’s Jake Bower were awarded the one-year scholarship for the 2011-12 academic year. Mathews, a member of the Lady Vikings basketball team, and Bower, who plays for the men’s basketball squad, were chosen based on their academic standing and leadership on their respective teams.
The scholarship was created in memory of Jim Bishop, a member of the school’s inaugural basketball team and later an assistant coach in the 1970s. He died in a car accident and the scholarship fund was formed by his family in 1980.
