Created in 2022 by the Marion Technical College Foundation, the Ernst & Ella Stuckey Scholarship Fund supports scholarships for students attending the local technical school. It is named in honor of Prospect natives, the late Ernst & Ella Stuckey, grandparents of Mike Stuckey, executive director of MTCF. He and his cousins created the scholarship to honor their grandparents and the value they placed on education. Ernst was a graduate of Western Reserve (now Case Western Reserve) and Ella of Michigan State Normal School (now Eastern Michigan University). He worked as an accountant and business manager at the former Frank’s Department Store in Marion. Ella was a school teacher. The scholarship will prioritize students from Prospect who attend Marion Tech.
