Celebrating a birthday with love!

Ken Kolberg’s friends and family celebrated his 100th birthday with a party, and a purpose: supporting education! Instead of the usual wrapped presents, gifts were directed to the Ken & Clara Kolberg Family Scholarship Fund!

Education is important to the Kolberg family. Ken, who had a 37-year career as a teacher, and his wife, Clara, had five children – all of whom became teachers! They’re proud of the scholarship awards that their fund has given to Muskegon High School students over the years, and now, the gifts given in celebration of Ken’s birthday will continue to support education…forever!

Ken’s birthday presents honor 100 years of life, and create hope and opportunity for our youth. Happy Birthday, Ken!
