Summer Adventures ScholarshipsMacKenna Milhon Scholarship at Stuhr Museum

These scholarships provide free tuition and transportation for deserving students to attend Stuhr Museum Summer Adventures.

This generous tribute was made possible by MacKenna Milhon’s loving family; grandparents Mike and Annetta Milhon, aunt and uncle Sunny and Kevin Forrest, and an employee nonprofit-match made by Union Pacific Railroad.

“MacKenna was just a red-headed freckle-faced girl who loved Stuhr Museum,” said, Mike Milhon.

MacKenna spent each summer vacation in Grand Island with her grandparents, and a highlight of those summers was the time she spent at Stuhr Museum, taking Summer Adventure classes, workshops and participation in the Living History Apprentice (LHA) Program.

The Alumni Scholarship in Memory of MacKenna Milhon will positively impact the lives of young people.
