Hinman ScholarshipThe family of Charles (Chuck) Hinman Jr., in cooperation with the U.P. Whitetails Association of Dickinson County, have created a scholarship to honor his memory.

This scholarship not only remembers the dedication that Chuck had to his career in law enforcement, it also speaks to his passion for wildlife and sharing the knowledge of the U.P. Whitetails Association in helping to save the deer and their habitat for future generations.

Not only did Chuck spend more than 35 years protecting citizens across the state of Michigan during his tenure with the Michigan State Police, he then worked with the Dickinson County Sheriff Department after his MSP retirement. Many people that crossed his path fondly remember his friendly smile, his laugh, and his one-of-a-kind personality.

The stories that he shared about the many wild game mounts that graced his walls will forever be remembered by his family and friends that had the sincere pleasure to have known Chuck. Not only was he an active member of the U.P. Whitetails Association of Dickinson County, he was also a life member of the North American Hunting Club, Safari Club International, the NRA, BPOE (Elks), and was a past member of the local Golden K Club.

The "U.P. Whitetails/Charles (Chuck) Hinman Jr. Memorial Scholarship", in the amount of $1,500, will be awarded to a KHS graduate of the Class of 2018. Applicants for the scholarship must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher and be pursuing a degree in the areas of criminal justice or law enforcement.

The Board of Education of Breitung Township Schools and the administration of Kingsford High School are pleased to accept the opportunity to coordinate such a heartfelt and worthwhile scholarship venture for the Hinman family, U.P. Whitetails, and graduates of Kingsford High School.
