As we celebrate what would of been the 51st Birthday of Michael "Mayor Sam" Higby, we gladly join Michael's Jaycee's Friends in announcing the "Michael Higby Community & Civic Pride Scholarship" at Los Angeles Valley College.
Michael's love of broadcasting took root during his time at Los Angeles Valley College.
** Blogger's Note: With a head tilted to the heavens, its time to wish our bloggin friend Michael "Mayor Sam" Higby a Happy Birthday on what would been the start of his 51st year on earth. In honor of his contribution to civic improvement, Michael's Jaycee's friends have this special honor to present him on his B-day via his friend Jack Witt---Scott Johnson.
Several of us past Presidents and Board Members of the Universal City North Hollywood Jaycees, who served with and worked with Michael in the local community, have started a scholarship in Michael's honor for a student at Los Angeles Valley College. The scholarship is for an individual who demonstrates leadership, commitment and passion on a community project that helps disadvantaged kids, families or seniors. These were all things near and dear to Michael's heart, and he inspired so many us to get involved in our communities and do the same. Michael attended LAVC in his young adult years.
So here's how you can help us and ensure the legacy of Michael Higby lives on.
